SPECIAL PRESENTATION FOR PARENTS AND STUDENTS Tuesday, March 31, 7:00 p.m., Auditorium (Refreshments @ 6:30 p.m.)
Speaker: Frank Bruni, New York Times Op Ed Columnist and bestselling author
Topic: A Healthier Approach to College and the Admissions Race
The competition for
acceptance by the Ivy League and its echelon grows ever more intense, and it
hinges on a debatable premise: That going to an elite, highly selective college
is a necessary ingredient--and maybe a guarantor--of success. But there are many
paths to a brilliant career and a fulfilled life, and New York Times Op-Ed
columnist and bestselling author Frank Bruni will discuss that as he
shares the research and reporting he did for his new book, "Where You
Go Is Not Who You'll Be: An Antidote to the College Admissions Mania."
With a short presentation followed by a Q-and-A with parents and students,
he'll talk about how to ratchet down the anxiety that attends the admissions
process and why that's a wise, good idea. He'll also illuminate the best ways
to choose and to use a college, nothing that a college's brand is no more
important than its fit.

NYS Senator Adriano Espaillat introduced Bill S-1787 to “Authorize[s] the board of education of the city school district of the City of New York to establish standards for admission to special high schools” (http://open.nysenate.gov/legislation/bill/S1787-2015) (The special high schools include: Stuyvesant,Bronx Science, Brooklyn Tech, Staten Island Tech, Queens HS for the Sciences at York College, HS for Math, Science and Engineering at City College, HS for American Studies at Lehman college, Brooklyn Latin, Laguardia HS and all additional schools that the board of education of the city school district of the City of New York designates as special high schools)Many Stuy parents attended the Dec 11 rally at City Hall to oppose the City Council Resolution to support the NYS bills to change the Specialized High Schools admissions policy from the current single, objective test admissions criterion to multiple, including subjective and non-academic, criteria. Many Stuy parents also testified at City Hall, signed petitions, and sent emails to legislators. Our voices make a difference! The resolution in the NYC Council may or may not come up for a vote. There will be more actions we can take as developments occur.Please contact
if you want further information and would like to be involved. Most recent update: Photos from the August 2014 Camp Stuy. Enjoy!
