“The plan to increase diversity in District 3 is a critical step towards achieving educational equality and addressing racial and income disparities in our City. All children – no matter their race or parents’ income – deserve a high quality education, which means access to schools with adequate resources, supported teachers and diverse student bodies. We will not be a fair, inclusive or just City until we take bold, concrete steps to desegregate all schools. I support Chancellor Carranza’s well thought out plan and the Upper West Side parents who support this critical initiative.”
