The School Diversity Advisory Group, co-chaired by Henry Cohen Professor Maya Wiley, Releases Its Report

The key recommendation of the newly released report, commissioned by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and titled Making the Grade: The Path to Real Integration and Equity for NYC Public School Students, is a call for the city to set diversity targets for all schools that reflect the diversity of the entire community. In a statement released to the New York Times, Maya Wiley said: “We look forward to the Chancellor’s and Mayor’s commitment to implementing these recommendations and will continue to make more recommendations to support schools that reflect who we are as a city.” The report is not the end of the panel’s work, the advisory group will continue to meet to explore further recommendations based on community input and engagement.
