Petitioning NYC DOE Deputy Chancellor Grimm

MAYOR DE BLASIO END THIS TALE OF TWO SPORTS CITIES NOW!

WHY ARE BLACK AND LATINO STUDENTS BEING DENIED ACCESS TO SPORTS IN NEW YORK CITY PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS?

BECAUSE 23 MILLION DOLLARS IS INEQUITABLY DISTRIBUTED BY THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS ATHLETIC LEAGUE - A DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION PROGRAM

HIGH SCHOOLS WITH THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGES OF STUDENTS OF COLOR HAVE THE LEAST SPORTS

HIGH SCHOOLS WITH THE HIGHEST RATES OF POVERTY HAVE THE LEAST SPORTS

SOME SCHOOLS GET 41 TEAMS AND $250,000 ANNUALLY ... OTHERS GET NOTHING

21,000 STUDENTS GO TO A HIGH SCHOOL WITH NO SPORTS

138,000 STUDENTS GO TO A HIGH SCHOOL WITH NO BASKETBALL, SOCCER, BASEBALL, SOFTBALL, AND/OR SOCCER

OUR MOST AT RISK STUDENTS ARE KEPT INELIGIBLE BY OUTDATED ELIGIBILITY RULES

SPORTS PARTICIPATION DECREASES JUVENILE CRIME, OBESITY, DROP OUT RATES, AND DRUG USE
