TC Research on Muslims in NYC Public Schools Featured in Islam Online

The work of TC faculty member Louis Cristillo on the post-9/11 experiences of Muslim students in New York City public schools is the focus of a story in the Web-based publication Islam Online. The story also quotes TC Noura Badawi, a TC alumna who teaches in Schenectady, New York, and mentions This Is Where I Need to Be: Oral Histories of Muslim Youth in NYC, an anthology of oral histories of 23 Muslim public school students compiled and written by 12 of the Muslim teenagers who participated in Cristillo's study. The volume was created under the aegis of TC's Student Press Initiative, and will be used as a teaching tool in public school classrooms along with a teacher's guidebook that will be published in the spring.
