TELL THE DOE TO BRING BACK PSAL SPORTS FOR ALL STUDENTS, NOT JUST THE PRIVILEGED FEW!April 6, 2021
Disability Justice, Education, News, Sports Equity
For years, the NYC Public School Athletic League (PSAL) has allocated more sports teams with greater variety to schools with a higher population of white students. In 2018, NYLPI sued the Department of Education (DOE) and the PSAL challenging this discriminatory system which provides far less access to after school sports to Black and Latinx students. After a full year pause of PSAL sports due to COVID-19, the DOE has announced it is bringing back PSAL sports for a spring/summer season, starting this month. The PSAL program for the spring/summer season appears to be one that will exacerbate the inequities in access to sports for Black and Latinx students across the City. Click here to take action!
