Prince Harry and Meghan Markle joined Schools Chancellor Meisha Porter at P.S. 123 Mahalia Jackson school to highlight the NYC Community Schools initiative.
To address the pandemic's impact on learning and as part of the City's commitment to Universal Literacy, NYC is investing in universal literacy screens for K-2 students to measure student progress in reading and writing. The Duchess published her own children's book, The Bench, in June this year, about the special bond between father and son as seen through a mother's eyes.
