New Measures for Identifying and Assisting NYC's Highest Poverty Schools

On November 6, 2014, the Center for New York City Affairs at Milano School for International Affairs, Management and Urban Policy, will hold an event celebrating the release of and discussing a new report, The Missing Link: New Measures for Identifying and Assisting NYC's Highest Poverty Schools. The report explores which elementary schools in NYC need the most help and what kind of supports will have the greatest impact. It proposes a new measure of poverty, designed to identify the highest needs schools, and discusses what should come next in Mayor Bill de Blasio's bid to reduce poverty's effects on students. Richard Buery, NYC Deputy Mayor for Strategic Policy Initiatives, will make introductory remarks at the event, and panelists include representatives from Medgar Evers College, Counseling in Schools, PS 48 William Wordsworth, United Way of New York City, and Center for New York City Affairs. The event is free, but interested participants must RSVP.
