School Choice and Integration in NYC 9:00 am
School Choice and Integration in NYC @ Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall
May 2 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Forty percent of New York City kindergartners are enrolled in schools other than their zoned neighborhood schools. What does this mean for them, and what does it mean for the schools they leave behind? The Center for New York City Affairs’ senior research fellow Nicole Mader will present our research findings, based on student-level zone assignment data for 700,000 pupils over 10 years. School choice has allowed thousands of children to leave low-performing schools for higher performing schools, often outside their neighborhoods. But it has also resulted in higher concentrations of poverty and shrinking enrollments and budgets in the schools they leave behind, making it ever harder for those schools to serve their neighborhoods well.

Design, Justice & Zero Waste: Exploring Pathways to the Circular Economy
May 8 @ 8:30 am – 9:30 am
The Tishman Environment and Design Center and GAIA (Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives) invite you to join us at Design, Justice & Zero Waste: Exploring Pathways to a Circular Economy conference and research collaborative. You will be part of a discussion with a global audience of innovative and creative eco-minded collaborators including practitioners, researchers, advocates and activists. As the world’s population increasingly urbanizes and the climate crisis worsens, the global economy risks breaching planetary boundaries with potentially catastrophic consequences if we continue to produce and consume at levels set by western standards. Frontline communities and workers in waste, manufacturing and distribution face disproportionate impacts from environmental degradation and extractive and exploitative industry practices. The conference will focus on how issues[...]
