Jail Middle School: Is Yassky Wacksy?

The Brooklyn Paper reports this week that City Councilman David Yassky (D- Brooklyn Heights) is supporting a plan to add a middle school to the Brooklyn House of Detention development plan:

Brooklyn Paper: Lock ‘Em Up: As a result, Corrections Commissioner Martin Horn told a group of local pols and community activists at a Jan. 2 meeting that he is considering housing a new middle school in the jail.

Councilman David Yassky (D–Brooklyn Heights) strongly supported the idea, according to people who attended the meeting at Borough Hall.

Yassky’s support for a jailhouse middle school follows his opposition to a plan by DUMBO developer David Walentas to include a middle school in his proposed Dock Street apartment tower because part of that building might block some views of the Brooklyn Bridge.

“David’s position has always been that we need a new middle school in the general Downtown area,” said Sam Rockwell, Yassky’s spokesman, adding that the councilman would certainly consider the school-in-a-jail concept.
