Nicole Mader, Melanie Quiroz, and Carmen Cheung co-authored a new Center for New York City Affairs (CNYCA) study on the proposal to change admission policy at the city’s specialized high schools. Nicole told the New York Daily News that the new plan isn’t “a simple matter of winners and losers, like a lot of people assume. It’s not a zero-sum game.”

Nicole is a senior research fellow at the Center and Ph.D. candidate in public and urban policy at The Milano School. Melanie is an education policy data analyst at the Center pursuing a master’s degree in public and urban policy at Milano. Carmen was a summer intern at the Center’s InsideSchools project
