- The Expanded Success Initiative (ESI) is a NYC Department of Education research and development initiative dedicated to increasing outcomes for Black and Latino young men in the NYC public school system. Starting in 2012, ESI invested in 40 schools that demonstrated success in graduating Black and Latino Young men. Through financial and personnel support, the initiative gave schools the support necessary to implement new practices targeting young men of color.
NYU Research Alliance, the external program evaluator selected by DOE, has released six reports related to the work of ESI, focused on strengthening the capacity of the schools to serve their students and to meet the goals of the initiative. View the reports here
