The United Federation of Teachers is leasing space in its Lower
Manhattan headquarters at 52 Broadway to serve as a special school for
about 70 students who have been suspended, Schoolbook, a new joint education news site of the New York Times and WNYC, reported. According to the teacher’s union, the city will be paying roughly market rate for the 10,000
square feet on the building’s fifth floor. The total cost is $450,000, including heat,
air-conditioning and cleaning.

The UFT has several non-profit tenants
in its conjoined buildings at 50 and 52 Broadway, including the
Y.W.C.A., the A.F.L.-C.I.O. and the National Association of Social
Workers. It previously leased the same space to a Manhattan high
school that needed a temporary location. The Department of Education said the agency had 38
suspension centers around the city. They house students who have been
suspended for five days or more, with some students taught in
a long-term center for an entire school year. Some centers are in
schools; others are in rented spaces. [Schoolbook]
