NY Chalkbeat covers Bronx Academy of Letters' class on school segregation

This year, IntegrateNYC4me director Sarah Camiscoli is teaching an elective class on school segregation at Bronx Academy of Letters. In the class, students discuss school segregation as a national and local issue, study how resources are distributed among segregated and integrated schools, and develop skills in student advocacy. Ultimately, they will present their findings before the DOE. Read the full feature by Monica Disare on NY Chalkbeat.

The class’s loftier goal is to give these students a voice in the ongoing public discussion about race and New York City schools. That debate has intensified this year, as New York’s schools were named among the most segregated in the nation. But those conversations rarely involve high schoolers from the South Bronx.
