From yesterday’s “Buy/Sell Red Hook” flea market, put on by RHED & Friends of PS 15:
This weekend Red Hook residents met for a series of workshops with Falconworks Artists Group (led by Reg, Chris, & Candice) & special guest, Julian Boal.
Starting at 7:00 p.m. tonight (5/31), Falconworks Artist Group will present the Red Hook Theater Project at PS 15 – 71 Sullivan Street.
Everyone involved, actors and spectators (“spect-actors” in this case), will be working to transform the community through original devised theater.

Check out students from Justin Wedes’s Digital Expressions music class, along with their collaborators from PS 15 in Red Hook, next Wednesday at the Apple Store in Soho. Students will be sharing their original beats and talking about the process of creating them. Special Guest- Percussionist, DTE Teaching Artist (and recent recipient of the nickname “The Godfather”) Angel Rodriguez.

Ever since the PAVE academy, a charter school here in the neighborhood, announced that it would be extending its stay inside the PS 15 building beyond its originally-planned two year period, there has been quite a bit of back and forth between the two parties.
Parents of PS 15 students feel that their children are being hurt by the presence of another school, adding more bodies to the school and potentially competing for resources.
PAVE, for its part, says that they are making the best out of an imperfect situation as they try to find their permanent home.
I’ll refrain from weighing in- if anything, the debate around charter schools is a complex one, and I think anyone who suggests that they are always/never a good thing isn’t looking at it from every side. I will say that it’s a shame that these two schools, both committed to teaching young people and both with solid track records, have been put in this position of opposition.
According to an article in the Brooklyn Paper, though, the controversy may be en route to ending.
“We have $26 million from the Department of Education, and we’ve raised $6.2 million on our own,” said Wally Bazemore, a member of the PAVE Academy board of directors.
Bazemore added that the academy needs $6 million more to have full funding its own facility at Henry and Mill streets.
So who knows how long that could be. Here’s hoping that a peaceful resolution is in sight, and that these two schools will continue to offer rewarding educational experiences for their students.
