At the forum, we will learn and talk about:

  • The current state of school segregation in NYC and District 15
  • Innovative efforts in other NYC districts to develop policies that combat segregation
  • District 15 schools that strive to achieve diversity, including the Brooklyn New School, Brooklyn School for Collaborative Studies, the Brooklyn Children’s School, PS 133, PS 15 (newly a magnet school), Brooklyn Prospect Charter and Park Slope Collegiate.
  • Ideas for next steps toward more integrated & inclusive schools
A worthy conversation and effort.
