Event to Discuss School Closures Draws a Crowd

Baltimore Algebra Project, Jessica Schiller and New Lens collaborated on an event to focus attention the issue of school closures.. They created a video about the impact of closing 26 Baltimore City schools. “We tried to deepen understanding about why under utilization and budget constraints as arguments used by those that accept school closures need a closer look.

"Our hope was that people walked away thinking more creatively about the challenges, energized to take action against closures and the importance of community control over the fate of schools.” ~ Rebecca Yenawine, New Lens. Over 100 people attended.
