Brooklyn Eagle features BKS’ appointment of Mel Jackman
Our words are inadequate to express the pain we are experiencing during this time of pandemic and civil unrest. Brooklyn Kindergarten Society (BKS) serves communities in Central Brooklyn that are disproportionately impacted by institutional racism and discrimination, poverty, and lack access to health care.
We hope for a just resolution to these situations; and, we at BKS will continue our important work to help the next generation start off on the same footing as those that live in more affluent neighborhoods within this borough.
BKS believes in giving every child a solid start by providing children, parents and caregivers with high-quality instruction, supportive services and enrichment activities. BKS’ program model is grounded in the belief that parents, families and communities are the principal influences on the development of children. So in partnership, we work together to raise strong, healthy and curious children. Our choice to work in these communities flows from a commitment since 1891 to support, lift up, and empower the borough’s children.
Education is transformative, and BKS will continue inspiring change within our students, their families, and their communities.
