Bias-Based Harassment in New York City Public Schools: A Report Card on the Department of Education's Implementation of Chancellor's Regulation A-832
Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund
On September 3, 2008, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Schools Chancellor Joel Klein announced Chancellor's Regulation A-832, which established a procedure for addressing student-to-student bias-based harassment, intimidation, and bullying. Community groups and advocates stood with the Mayor and Department of Education (DOE) leadership in announcing the Regulation, applauding it as an important step in the right direction. Since last fall, The Sikh Coalition, Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF), Coalition for Asian American Children and Families (CACF), and the New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU) have been leading an initiative to monitor and assess the implementation of the new regulation. Through surveying over 1,100 students and educators in New York City public schools, they have learned that a wide gap exists between the mandates and promise of the Regulation and the condition of the youth in City schools. This Report Card summarizes the findings of these surveys and provides an assessment of the implementation of Chancellor's Regulation A-832 in the first school year of its existence. Demographics, Methodology, Notes are appended. (Contains 14 notes.) [This paper was co-created with the Sikh Coalition and the Coalition for Asian American Children and Families (CACF).]
