Parent Rebels

The New York Post has a story about Harlem parents fighting for more choices for their kids.

Mom Eunice Greene said, "I'm getting out of District 5. I refused to have my son go from one failing school into another failing school."

Greene's 12-year-old son, Christopher, was told to attend IS 172 - where 99 percent of eighth-graders flunked the state's math exam. She said she has applied to home-school him instead.
