7/16/2020: Appleseed today released an updated 2020 edition of its groundbreaking Within Our Reach briefings on segregation in elementary schools. In 2013 Appleseed demonstrated to New York City that segregation in elementary schools was no mere reflection of neighborhood segregation, but was often a product of policy choices. This fundamental insight remains as relevant as ever, but – thanks in many cases to our advocacy – many City policies have since changed. Read the 2020 edition here to learn more about what can be done about the persistent segregation in our public elementary schools.
