In a recent New York Daily News op-ed, Obrian Rosario, one of NYLPI’s Fair Play Coalition youth leaders, writes about unfair access to after-school sports in New York City public schools. He discusses the inequities of New York City public high school sports, how COVID has impacted and “leveled” the playing field by not allowing any students to play Public Schools Athletic League (PSAL) sports, and how a more equitable system needs to be put in place post-COVID.
