R.E.A.L. Talk – Education Equity | 10-22-20

November 2, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


New York City’s school system is deeply segregated. Only 28% of public schools qualify as diverse when diversity is defined as no one racial group exceeding 50% of enrollment and no two groups exceeding 80%. A well-documented racial achievement gap persists despite attempted interventions to close it. What’s more, compelling analysis seems to indicate that the racial wealth gap is inextricable from the achievement gap, pointing to the fact that the micro-interventions we have proposed to this point are insufficient to address the underlying causes of the disparate outcomes. On October 22, with partners Citizens’ Committee for Children of New York (CCC), and FPWA, we considered how larger systems play into educational equity. Hundreds joined UNH Executive Director, Susan Stamler, in conversation with panelists Takiema Bunche Smith, Executive Director of the Center on Culture, Race undefined Equity, Bank Street College of Education; Dr. Michelle A. Paige, Associate Executive Director, University Settlement; and Anne Williams-Isom, James R. Dumpson Chair, Child Welfare Studies, Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service.

FPWA has recently been receiving claims from members of the public emailing and calling our offices that individuals posing as FPWA agents have contacted them claiming that in order for the recipient to claim grant monies from FPWA they must first send the agent personal information, a cell phone number, gift card codes or money.

FPWA does not use social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), text messages or direct phone contact to solicit, review, or make awards. FPWA staff will not call or message you requesting money in order to be eligible for an award.

Further, FPWA does not make grants directly to individuals. FPWA works with its member agency partners and other reputable community-based organizations to direct support to families and individuals in our community.

If you or someone you know has been contacted by someone posing to be an “FPWA Agent” or staff person requesting money to release a grant, please do the following:
