TV reports of Thursday night massacre: protests vs. the closing of 23 schools

None of the newspaper articles capture the full rage and bitterness expressed last night by thousands of parents, students and teachers at last night's hearings, at which the Panel for Educational Policy, controlled by the mayor, rubberstamped the closing or truncation of 23 schools.  Best among the print accounts was live-blogging by GothamSchools and the NYPost article by Yoav Gonen  (GSPost).

The videos do a far better job at conveying the atmosphere, if not the substance, of what happened last night.  Below are the reports from Channel 2 news (CBS),   Channel 7 (ABC), Channel 4 (NBC), Fox News, and a short video by Michael Galinsky, maker of the Atlantic Yards documentary, Battle for Brooklyn.

Last night was one more skirmish in the battle for our public schools, and for the future of this city. Whether it will prove to be a turning point in the history of mayoral control, brought down by the administration's arrogant disregard for the views of parents, students, and community members, remains to be seen.
