A big day for school integration in New York City. We applaud the mayor for embracing the 5 Rs of #RealIntegration as framed by the students of Integrate NYC and for adopting so many of the recommendations of the School Diversity Advisory Group’s initial report. That the mayor recalls his advocacy on the diversity committee of his children’s elementary school reminds us also of the important role that parent organizing has played to get us here. Times have changed indeed.
