NY1 At 20: 1993 Report Follows Parents' Brooklyn School Takeover
In 1993, a group of parents fed up with the way their children were being treated by the Board of Education took matters into their own hands.
P.S. 156 in Brooklyn had been shut down because of asbestos, and students were bused to neighboring schools that were already overcrowded. Dozens of angry parents took over P.S. 156 in protest, refusing to leave the building until their kids got better treatment.
As we continue our look back at 20 years of NY1, the station revisits Michael O'Looney's report from October 19, 1993.
