Education\, whic h should be a right\, is often a privilege. In this show\, we ask artists t o consider the disparities that exist in our education system through the l enses of class\, school districts\, and race. School budgets based on prope rty taxes in some areas are one example of the stratification of schools ba sed on class. The achievement gap between minority students and their white counterparts has increased in recent years due to the reliance on standard ized testing and uncertain budgetary constraints. There is a need for educa tional reform to a system that was developed to reflect white middle class values\, instead of the culture where the school is embedded. The developme nt of East Harlem as a community embodies these varying disparities within its educational system. We seek to include work that explores these and oth er issues related to education and the community of East Harlem. We also ai m to include work that is inspired by the dedication that quality educators have shown to their students and to the school community.
