Student | Leslie Velasquez Faculty | Jennifer Becker, Ron Shiffman School of Architecture, Graduate Center for Planning and the Environment
In 2014, New York City was found to be the most segregated school district in the United States of America. Since then, New York City Department of Education has released a report aimed at diversifying school districts that currently serve a diverse student population, while never fully acknowledging segregated school districts nor school integration.
Located in Brooklyn, New York, Brownsville-Ocean Hill parents once advocated for school integration in District 23. The goal of this thesis is to explore the ways in which school District 23 and others alike can become integrated school districts
