The Magnet School for Civics in the Community in New York, otherwise known as I.S. 230, is preparing for a new annex that will expand the school into two buildings. Principal Sharon Terry said the extra space will ease overcrowding for the 1,000 civics-focused middle-school students, who work on social studies projects and perform community service. "We felt that we wanted our children to be socially responsible. That no matter who you are, you are part of history, you are history, and it's people who make history," said Terry in this interview.
