Eric Zachary, Executive Director
Public Education Grants
Over the last five years, the Annenberg Institute for Education Reform Community Involvement Program (CIP) has been developing and coordinating collaboratives comprising community-based groups organizing for education reform, some also including labor as members, with the goal of increasing capacity, expertise and power in order to effectively impact the quality of education at both the local and systemic levels. A one-year $70,000 grant from Hazen will support the ongoing organizing work of the City-wide Coalition for Educational Justice (CEJ) and the Urban Youth Collaborative (UYC). Over the next year CEJ will continue to organize parents and work with the DOE to ensure that the Middle School Success Plan is effectively implemented in low performing middle schools and will also play a leadership role in mayoral control legislation and in ensuring budget commitments. Over this period, UYC, a City-wide collaborative of community-based youth organizing groups, will also organize around mayoral control concerns, develop a new high school reform campaign, work for the passage of the Student Safety Act and ensure implementation of Student Success Centers.
