Privilege is Segregation

With New York City being one of the most segregated school systems in the country today, we must confront what is at the root of this segregation. Yes, it is race, and also socio-economic status. But what these two and many other identity markers do is disguise the privilege that lie underneath. Sonia serves as a member of the School Diversity Advisory Group, and they call out this privilege with NYC public schools’ use of selective enrollment and its Gifted and Talented (G&T) programs. Sonia has also written her own thoughts on the DCSC blog.

Academy of the City
“DCSC is the right org for us to partner with; it’s one of the very few organizations that prioritize conversations around intentionality of diversity throughout your school community.” 

“Unfortunately, there are not many places where charter school leaders can come together to learn from each other around questions of staff recruitment and hiring, developing leadership pipelines, ensuring academic achievement and engaging parents all with an eye toward diversity and inclusion. DCSC fills this niche and that’s why we are ready to make a financial commitment to the future member dues program.”
