Co-location is the controversial policy of having multiple schools share a single school building. CEE's new report,"The Effects of Co-Location on New York City's Ability to Provide All Students a Sound Basic Education," is based on site visits and interviews with staff in close to 50 New York City public schools. It provides evidence to suggest that co-location exacerbates some schools' existing resource deficiencies and creates further constraints to their ability to fulfill all students' constitutional educational rights. It concludes with some recommendations for the mayor and the chancellor.
CEE's Michael Rebell and Jessica Wolff are part of a Teachers College research team awarded a Wallace Foundation grant to study the "collective impact" approach to tackling social and educational challenges. The grant will enable the team to embark on a multiyear study of this approach in three mid-sized cities. Stay tuned to learn more about this exciting project!
