This chapter discusses the aftermath of the successful reforms implemented at District 9. The CC9 has since expanded past its initial stage in the South Bronx area, and alongside it are several other parent-led campaigns bent on amassing social capital in the same manner as the CC9. However, administrative turnovers within the public educational sector and within the national spectrum in recent years have left mixed results. On the one hand, it is essential that alternatives to the neoliberal policies be implemented; on the other, debates are and will continue to rage over the issue of policy reform and experimentation within the public education system. But as in the past, collaborative parent-led efforts working up from the grassroots level can lead to the needed policy changes and give the disenfranchised youth the education they rightly deserve.
