Bronx churchgoers get a special visit from the city schools chancellor
NYC Schools Chancellor Joel Klein visited Crossroads Tabernacle in Castle Hill Sunday. The chancellor is trying to bridge the gap between the community and keeping Bronx schools safe.
The chancellor talked with churchgoers about an Alfred E. Smith Vocational High School student killed because he wouldn?t join a gang. Fernando Corea, 16 was killed in the Throgs Neck section of The Bronx by another teen. He was the quarter back of the football team.
Chancellor Klein says he will continue reaching out to different groups in The Bronx, like churches to try and bring down violence in schools. Bronx residents say it?s going to take the whole community to alleviate this problem.
