HERBERT H. LEHMAN HIGH SCHOOL TO RALLY AGAINST BUDGET CUTS
Herbert H. Lehman High School has a long tradition of excellence. Within just this academic year, students have earned 7.2 million dollars in scholarship money, and teachers have been featured nationally and internationally despite an “F” rating from the NYC Department of Education.
Bronx, New York -- over the last several years New York City cut funding to school dramatically. Lehman High School has lost approximately 6 million dollars over the course of the last 3 years. Mayor Bloomberg is proposing budget cuts that will continue to slash our programs – the very programs that have produced national and international recognition. Speakers will include Dr. Mark Naison, Fordham University Professor and Bronx Historian and Council Member James Vacca.
