This spring, Teens Take Charge returns to the stage with "We Regret to Inform You," an evening of student testimony about New York City's segregated high school system.
Teens Take Charge is a movement that uplifts students' voices to raise awareness of educational inequity in the NYC public school system. The movement's student leaders have created an energy-packed show of true stories that represent the 270,000 high school students in this system whose race, socioeconomic status, and middle school test scores often determine the quality of their education. The show's goal is to raise broad awareness of flaws in the high school admissions process and to empower the people most impacted by these flaws – teens – to address them.
