Students protest after Paulo Freire Justice Charter School decides to close their doors
Western Mass News spoke with students who explained their learning environment has been compromised since the school announced its closure back in January. “You can’t expect us to stay in a classroom where there is no teacher and we are not being taught,” said Natalie Sarroyo. “We are trying to advocate for ourselves, and they are not allowing us to. It’s not fair.”Sarroyo and other students said they have not received any report cards this year and many of their classes have been understaffed.They also told us without these report cards, it has become difficult for seniors to apply to colleges.
