Hard to believe how much worse the High School admissions process was just five years ago, from my vantage point of stepping into the insanity for the first time this year. Should I even bother trying to understand it? Or just have faith that the system is fair?
Actually, this article and the graphic does a pretty good job of explaining it. Better than anything I’ve heard from the DOE so far.

Community leaders in NYC School District 1 are serious about promoting our schools and supporting our 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!Read More
