Direct Chalkbeat’s reporting: Cell phones and discipline; school reputations; integration


What have you always wanted to know about New York City schools? Is there anything in education that you’ve always wondered about?

Your curiosity fuels Chalkbeat’s Raise Your Hand series.

All Raise Your Hand stories originate with questions submitted by the public. The Chalkbeat team then sifts through those questions and works together with our readers to find the best answers.

For example, Cristal Cruz asked, “Why is New York City one of the most diverse cities with one of the most segregated school systems?” Tenzin Choeyang asked, “Do all New York City high schools offer the same classes? If not, why?”

Past stories that came from reader questions:

“Is there a building that houses many schools that are working particularly well together? How are the schools collaborating?”

In a Bronx campus, principals say a new disparity won’t undermine their collaboration

What makes a charter school co-location work? Two Bronx buildings offer answers
