New York State Adopts MBK


The New York State Education Department lays out both the milestones of the National My Brother’s Keeper Task Force created by President Obama, and the specific MBK initiatives New York has committed to. These commitments include ensuring equitable access to high quality schools and programs; expanding prevention, early warning, and intervention services; using differentiated approaches based on need and culture; responding to structural and institutional racism; making comprehensive and coordinated support services widely available; and engaging families and communities in a trusted and respectful way.
