Pathways for Graduation, a popular after-school program in Bedford-Stuyvesant, could be in jeopardy if the city Department of Education decides to use the space for a charter school, according to News12 Brooklyn. The program teaches students how to repair old bikes. Teacher Nicole Greaves told News12 Brooklyn the program, which helps students find jobs, is a lifesaver for students who have fallen through the cracks. However, if Brooklyn East Collegiate School moves into the building, at 832 Marcy Ave., the workshop would have to share their floor with hundreds of other students. The Panel for Educational Policy is set to vote on the charter school proposal next week.
