UNION SQUARE, Manhattan (WABC) — As New York City grapples with the challenges of educational inequality, one principal says she may have found a solution in the public high school she founded six years ago.

 

 “As part of the chasm of inequality in this city, people feel like a good school is a scarce resource,” said Harvest Collegiate Principal Kate Burch. “I really felt like it shouldn’t be that way. So I really wanted to make another good school.”
