Organizing for Educational Justice: The Campaign for Public School Reform in the South Bronx
(University of Minnesota Press, 2010)
Organizing for Educational Justice tells the story of Community Collaborative to Improve District 9 (CC9), a consortium of six neighborhood-based groups in the Bronx, from its origins in 1995 as a small group of concerned parents to the citywide application of its reform agenda ten years later. Drawing on in-depth interviews with participants, analysis of qualitative data, and access to meetings and archives, Fabricant evaluates CC9’s innovative approach to organizing and collaboration with other stakeholders, including the United Federation of Teachers, the New York City Department of Education, neighborhood nonprofits, and city colleges and universities. As urban parents search for ways to hold public schools accountable for their failures, this book shows how the success of the CC9 experience can be replicated elsewhere around the country. Michael B. Fabricant (Prof., Hunter) is on the doctoral faculty in social welfare.
