THE STORY:

Ron and Nancy Angoff wrote -

Our daughter Carrie is the Executive Director of the Urban Assembly School for Law and Justice, a public high school in downtown Brooklyn which serves a population of at-risk, low-income students, three-quarters of whom are living at or near or below the poverty line. Most of them will be the first in their family to go to college. SLJ accepts incoming 9th graders irrespective of academic ability, and through its three pillars of education—intensive academic instruction, robust enrichment offerings woven into the curriculum, and individualized college preparatory support—gives them the tools to create a brighter future for themselves. Most students arrive in 9th grade with a 4th or 5th grade reading level, but by 11th grade more than 85% pass the English Regents with a 75 or better. Last year, SLJ’s graduation rate was 88% compared to a citywide average of 68%, and 88% of SLJ’s 2013 graduates remained in college a year after graduation. Through the lens of social justice and with a view toward reducing inequality, SLJ promotes individualized education that draws on each student’s potential, while at the same time emphasizing students’ collective power as citizens to call for positive change in the world. Their website is www.283adams.org
