This fall, students will be investigating:

Who has the right to loiter? Who has the right to hang out? With Teaching Artist Stephen Kwok at Life Sciences Secondary School.

Who gets prosecuted for marijuana and who profits from it? With Teaching Artist Hugo Rojas at the Bronx School for Law, Government, and Justice.

What is the role of art in public space? Who decides which art is appropriate? With Teaching Artist Ilaria Ortensi at the International Community High School.

Why do students get suspended? How do suspensions impact schools, students, and their families? With Teaching Artist Ro Garrido and classroom teachers Lexi Scholes and Kimberly Gaston at the International Community High School.

Who profits from jails and prisons? Where does the money come from? With Teaching Artist Marianna Olinger and classroom teacher Adam Sherfield at Bushwick Leaders’ High School for Academic Excellence.

Stay tuned for more updates on the students’ progress!
