Learning the History of Education in Harlem
The crux of Youth Historians in Harlem relies on the research that students will explore--but what exactly are they exploring? With graduate students as a guide, the youth will explore a topic of personal interest within (or somehow related to) the history of education in Harlem. Understanding how education and public schooling, specifically, developed in Harlem is implicit in the work that students produce--and of the YHH scholarship goals.
