NYC high school students forced into remote learning as 2,000 migrants sheltered in school instead --The move sparked anger from parents and local politicians | 9 Jan 2024 | Nearly 2,000 migrants being sheltered in a tent shelter in New York City are being transferred to a nearby high school, where the students will have to pivot to remote learning due to the disruption it is causing -- sparking outrage from residents and local politicians. New York City Mayor Eric Adams' office said it is moving 1,900 migrants from the tent shelter at Floyd Bennett Field for safety reasons due to the incoming storms and potential high winds. But it is controversially moving them to James Madison High School, which confirmed it was being used as a "temporary overnight respite center" and would be closed as a result on Wednesday -- with students being forced to "pivot" to remote learning as a result.
