Letter from President Kneller on Daycare Center

This letter from Brooklyn College President John Kneller demonstrates the level of engagement that feminist faculty and staff organizers of the Day Care Collective demanded from university leadership as they experienced dismissal after dismissal. While President Kneller proposed a temporary home for the day care program, he was forced to contend with activists who continued to demand adequate, safe childcare for children whose parents worked or studied at Brooklyn College.
