(DNAINFO)  Amy Zimmer | December 30, 2015 — It’s no secret that New York City public schools are highly segregated.

That includes breakdowns of gifted and talented programs and special needs students — details that will hopefully help educators, parents and advocates pushing for reforms, according to Park Slope City Councilman Brad Lander, who sponsored the legislation.
