Public Hearing: New Charter School in South Bronx

Public Hearing, Application of Charter High School for Law and Social Justice

WHAT: A public hearing to discuss the application to open the Charter High School for Law and Social Justice in the South Bronx (school district 7, 8, 9 or 12) made to the New York State Education Department. The proposed school — a unique partnership of New York Law School, Mount St. Vincent College and Legal Outreach, a not-for-profit that provides educational opportunities to NYC high school students — will provide students from traditionally underserved communities with a high-quality education focused on creating pathways to college, graduate school, and careers in the legal profession. Students will be exposed to a rigorous curriculum that uses law and social justice issues to help students develop the crucial skills of critical thinking and analysis, literacy, and effective communication.
