Talking Transition: Every School a Community School
Last week, The Children’s Aid Society took part in “Talking Transition”, a civic forum which brought together tens of thousands of New Yorkers, online and at its pop-up tent on Canal Street, to talk about the future of the city and how to shape the transition for Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio.
On Tuesday, November 19th, The Children’s Aid Society discussed how New York City’s children and families can receive the supports and opportunities they need to succeed and thrive in school. Community schools, an educational reform strategy, remove barriers to learning by organizing the resources of schools and communities around student success. Attendees had the opportunity to learn more about the impact of community schools, view the story of community school graduate Chastity Salas and hear from a panel that included Richard Buery, President and CEO of The Children’s Aid Society.
