The Drop Knowledge Project has launched TWO youth-driven publishing initiatives: an edited book and an open-source journal. See below.
"Narratives of a Broken System:
Critical Perspectives on Miseducation in New York City Public Schools"
Call for submission to a participatory publishing project about New York City public schools.The editors invite past and present students, teachers, parents, and others to submit contributions about their individual experiences in the school system for inclusion in an edited anthology. We seek social justice perspectives that offer reflection, critique, critical response and creative visioning. Contributions could be personal narratives, research, creative writing, poetry, short stories, visual art or other work that offers insight on experiences in NYC public schools.
