Chalkbeat: After parent opposition, Queens integration plans are delayed


February 7, 2020

“A controversial Queens middle school integration effort that garnered intense parent backlash has been delayed — even before the community engagement process officially kicked off.

Families in District 28, spanning from Forest Hills and Rego Park to Jamaica and Richmond Hill, have turned out in force at public meetings over the past couple of months to voice opposition to the possible plan. WXY Studio, a consulting firm hired by the city to lead the community engagement process — as it did for middle schools in Brooklyn’s District 15 — had anticipated starting a series of public workshops last month, and was expected to have recommendations ready by June.”
