The New York Academy of Public Education was established in 1912. At that time, the leaders of this professional honorary organization focused its primary efforts on the advancement and progress of urban education. The Academy successfully provided a common forum and meeting ground in fostering educational activities between the professional community and the public-at-large. One hundred years later our primary efforts remain the same.
The Academy will be announcing a call for manuscripts for its Professional Research Journal. The New York Academy of Public Education encourages all members and colleagues to submit a manuscript for publication in our Professional Research Journal. We thank Dr. John Jangl, Dr. Linda Patterson and the peer editors, for taking on the editing of our annual issue. Members who are interested in peer editing, should contact Dr. John Jangl at Triadedu@aol.com.
