We are journalists, former teachers, parents and public school advocates dedicated to improving schools for every child in the city. We believe that engaged, informed parents can promote racially and economically integrated schools of the highest quality. We work towards that goal by providing independent reviews of schools based on visits and school data, publishing research and guides about the NYC school system, and encouraging parent dialogue on InsideSchools+, and and helping families navigate the NYC public school system.
InsideSchools is a project of the Center for New York City Affairs at The New School and is supported by grants from the Booth Ferris Foundation, Heckscher Foundation, the Leo Model Foundation and The New School. We are also supported by reader donations and advertising revenue. Former grantors include the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the New York Community Trust, and the Walton Family Foundation.
