New York, NY, May 9, 2020—INCLUDEnyc Executive Director Barbara A. Glassman has been appointed to the Mayor’s Sector Advisory Council for Education, which will inform the City’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic for schools, families, and students.

“Students and their families have faced unprecedented challenges during COVID-related school closures which are creating even greater inequities for our students with disabilities. The City’s decisions about re-reopening and education policies must be inclusive of the disability community,” said Barbara A.
