The Next Step: Prioritizing Equity and Recovery in NYC High School Admissions
Feerick Center Releases Report Calling on the New York City Department of Education to Take Concrete Steps for Greater Equity in Admissions Methods
The Next Step provides the New York City Department of Education with a policy roadmap to overhaul middle and high school admissions processes. In the report, experts call for three substantial reforms that can be implemented in this moment and provide building blocks for a more equitable future:
- First, a permanent end to middle school screens.
- Second, a requirement that high schools “opt-in” to screening together with mandatory equitable admissions priorities.
- Third, significantly enhanced supports for students and families--with dedicated funding--for the admissions process.
