What is the timeline and how will this work?
The Gowanus/Red Hook/Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill PAR project was originally designed to run from February – June 2020. We recruited 10 local community members to join the project as the core research team. This group met weekly for three weeks before New York State entered PAUSE for the COVID-19 pandemic. In May, we re-gathered – on Zoom – and the project re-launched.
The project has been extended to run through September.
In June – we are reaching out to community members to conduct small group and one-on-one conversations about experiences and perspectives on schooling.
In July – we will begin a participatory data analysis process with opportunities for wide-spread community participation and knowledge building.
In August – we will continue participatory data analysis and form recommendations.
