This is a research study on public education reform in New York City Latino core neighborhoods (neighborhoods that are, or have historically been, majority Latino). We hope that you find our discussions informative, engaging and inspiring.  It is our hope that the study will help provide concerned community members, local politicians, and researchers, an opportunity to learn more about what educational issues are most pressing for the local community now and in the past, and what kind of action residents have taken to advocate for their own educational needs. By documenting and sharing this information we hope to inform the work of residents, policy makers, scholars and education personnel as they shape public education for all people.
