District 30 parents, community leaders and legislators are furious this week at city Department of Education (DOE) Chancellor David Banks for ousting a beloved Queens superintendent with no explanation, they claim.

Dr. Philip Composto has been asked to step down after devoting his career to the schools in western Queens’ District 30 for over 40 years; his last day would be June 30. After learning of the news Wednesday, May 11, the community wasted no time protesting through petitions, online forums and rallies to call on the DOE to reverse its decision.
