The Baltimore Algebra Project (BAP), a new grantee, is a youth run organization that tackles math illiteracy and seeks to empower youth within the city school system through math education and student organizing. The organization has developed a strong reputation for effectiveness both in improving educational outcomes for its students and representing the interests of Black youth. Black youth in Baltimore run the organization, from scheduling tutoring appointments to filing taxes to identifying issues and tactics for campaigns. Hazen’s grant will support BAP’s advocacy for a National Student Bill of Rights. In the coming year, the organization will use the Bill of Rights as a framework for understanding and resisting police violence and for creating a model of community control of schools. BAP will develop materials for the Maryland legislature that present this model of community control as a viable alternative to charterization.
