How Can We Integrate NYC Schools? Talk To The Students.

Matt Gonzales, Appleseed’s School Diversity Project Director, believes that students are a critical part of the process of integrating NYC schools. We agree!

He elaborated in a recent interview:  “We need to highlight the voices of students and actually ask them what they want, and try to help those students tell their parents what they think is the best way for them to learn. And I have a feeling that students will be able to articulate the benefits better than us, too. So part of it is going to be having students really raise their voices up.”
