We will gladly post what people send us about rallies and Joint Public Hearings to stop school closings. Here is what has been sent to us in the last few days.

1. Beach Channel High School is having their Joint Public Hearing on Thursday, January 13, 2011 at 6:00 p.m.

2. JHS 231 located at 145-00 Springfield Blvd. in Springfield Gardens, NY 11423 will be having a rally before their Joint Public Hearing on Wednesday, January 26, 2011. The rally will be at 5:00 PM and the Joint Public Hearing will be at 6:00 p.m. In their release, they say the following: "Help us stop the NYC Department of Education from phasing out JHS 231. We need your support in convincing the D.O.E. to keep JHS 231 open, so that our children can continue to get their middle school education in our own local neighborhood school."

3. GEM is sponsoring along with many other groups, including ICE, TJC, Teachers Unite and Class Size Matters, a rally at City Hall opposing school closings and charter co-locations on January 27th at City Hall. It will go from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
