Open to the public, educational leaders and experts in the field of education will unpack the concept of "choice" in school admissions and the opt out movement. In particular, panelists will discuss how race and class, especially, play a critical role in what choice looks like and who gets to choose, and what we can do to provide more equitable opportunities for all communities. ***Light refreshments will be served*** Panelists include: Jamaal Bowman, the founding principal of CASA Middle School, Dr. Madeline Pérez De Jesús, Associate Professor in the Dept. of Social Work & Equitable Community Practice at the University of St. Joseph, and Dr. Ric Campbell, Executive Director and Co-founder of the South Bronx Early College Academy Charter School, with Dr. Deborah Shanley, Interim Dean of the Lehman College School of Education, and Dr. Rosa L.
