Publishing Invitation for High School Students:

Note from our 2021-2022 Youth Co-editors, Lev Burstein and Liam Yaghoobzadeh—11th graders at Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia, and Edgemont High School in New York—of the Special Edition Issue of Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education 

We are looking for high school students in Philadelphia and NYC to write reflections on their experiences of school reentry and transition in the current school year. Each reflection can be 550-750 words and will be featured in the special edition of the Perspectives on Urban Education. This is a unique opportunity, great for job resumes and the college application process.

In hopes of publishing a Journal that represents students from a wide variety of schools and social identities, we would greatly appreciate it you promote this opportunity to all students you believe would benefit from this process. Please share with teachers and principals widely, there is no limit on how many we can accept!

We will receive essays in their finished form with the student's name/school/grade/email information via email by March 1st. For some, we will send edits and suggestions back and for others, an approval email.

If you have any questions, please email:
