Community leaders in NYC School District 1 are serious about promoting our schools and supporting families. To demonstrate, they’ve organized a walking tour of (almost) every District 1 middle school for families to visit. Doors will be open this Saturday for parents and students (especially those who have a hard time touring during the work week) to meet teachers, principals and other parents from each school, to ask questions and learn about options. The goal is to encourage families to expand their choices and encourage the community to engage in diversifying our schools in this highly segregated neighborhood. We’re looking forward to joining the walk!
This is where we share some of our insights, as well as practical knowledge and tools that can be used to strengthening public sector programs.
