  • NEWS: UPTC Parents Confront Charter School Issue

    Over one hundred parents at a United Parent Teacher Council (UPC) meeting on Nov. 17 struggled to contain their dismay while absorbing information as Dr. William Shine, superintendent of the Great Neck Public Schools, methodically and calmly gave them a crash course in charter schools and the law as it pertains to New York state. Cautioning parents to "first understand the facts and vigorously debate the issues involved without denigrating the people who have brought forth a charter school application in Great Neck," Dr. Shine emphasized that his role is to disseminate information as it unfolds to the parents and the community-at-large. He acknowledged that situations like this one could produce tensions within any community and that his first consideration is the welfare of all the children.

The Rebels regained their composure and won the next two games 15-9 and 15-10 for an upset. Coach McCullough credits his team for being ready.
