The Panel for Education Policy (or PEP), enacts policy for the New York City Dept. of Education.
The PEP replaced the Board of Education when Mayor Bloomberg took control of the schools in 2002.
It is intended to be a democratic forum where people voice concerns, prior to the panel’s vote on educational policy.
Today the panel is convening to discuss new standards being implemented in schools.
200 parents, teachers staff and students are in attendance.
