Giving Compass’ Take:
• Alex Zimmerman writes about the 4 questions you need to ask regarding the School Diversity Advisory Group’s nine chosen New York City regions that they argue should be required to come up with diversity plans.
• How can donors and funders support initiatives towards classroom and school diversity?
A task force charged with tackling school segregation in New York City released a series of proposals Tuesday designed to make the city’s schools more representative of their broader neighborhoods.
At the center of the report is a push for each school in New York City — home to one of the most segregated school systems in America — to be more representative of district- and borough-level demographics.
Here are four questions we’ll be watching about what happens next:
- Mayor Bill de Blasio has not prioritized desegregation. Will that change?
- The report says nine districts should be required to come up with desegregation plans. Will the education department embrace top-down mandates?
- Even if the mayor embraced a more active city role in crafting integration efforts, how would that work?
- How quickly could changes get off the ground?
