Plácida Rodríguez, a Dominican grandmother of two public school students and a member of non-profit Make the Road NY (MRNY) said the campaign ultimately aims to improve the quality of education.

“New York is a city of immigrants. It is very important that a curriculum is adopted which reflects our Hispanic culture, as well as the African-American one, the cultures of our ancestors. This is about fighting for a more expanded system that provides our students with a different view of the world,” she said.
