New York City has been called one of the most segregated school systems in the country, but some schools buck the trend and enroll a mix of children of different races and income levels. InsideSchools visited more than 80 racially and economically integrated elementary schools in the past year. We will present our findings about what makes these schools successful, the challenges they face, and the lessons they offer for the rest of the city. A panel of school leaders will discuss their experiences with successful integration. Zipporiah Mills, former principal PS 261, Brooklyn Victoria Hunt, founding principal, Dos Puentes Elementary School, Manhattan Clarence Ellis, superintendent, District 17, Brooklyn Moderated by Clara Hemphill, director of education policy and InsideSchools.
