In reflection of the 70th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, NY Appleseed, in partnership with NYU Metro Center released a new report, ” From Crest to Valleys: NYC’s Battle For Integration 70 Years After Brown.” In the report we gather and highlight the history, data, and resources that have defined the integration movement in New York City over the past decade. We further provide guidance on how we can continue building momentum and advance Real Integration across public schools.

As New York City enters a new chapter in the state of integration, this report provides insight into the policy wins for integration that occurred right before the pandemic, and the subsequent changes that have carried this momentum through an unprecedented time for New York City’s school system and the students and families it serves.
