more high schools added to the DOE Diversity Initiative

he DOE announced that it added more schools to its Diversity Initiative: http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/education/ny-metro-city-expands-school-desegregation-programs-20180802-story.html

No one has mentioned how this is all going to work as currently, economic status isn’t included in high school applications. So it’s a we’ll see process.
