UFT statement on the Adams’ administration placing asylum seekers in school gymnasiums

Press Releases

"Teachers are already doing their best for incoming children and families, but we need the city, state, and federal governments to do their jobs and come up with a coordinated plan. School gymnasiums cannot be the first option for sheltering newcomers. We have federal locations. We have state locations. Apparently, we have to publicly call out elected officials for them to come up with a coordinated plan, and not leave the problem to educators and school communities." 

—UFT President Michael Mulgrew
