Update #1: #3WTotal

Hello!

Last week I requested information about 3rd Ward’s debts. I asked instructors, members & students to share their stories. Thank you to everyone who has sent me information for this ongoing project.

What’s the total?
To date, I have received claims against outstanding memberships, course fees and instructor invoices of: $38,450. This is an estimate, and not a final total.

What else?
Brooklyn media has been supportive and encouraging and is helping spread awareness about this project. Here are some links:

Bedford+Bowery
Brokelyn
Brooklyn Magazine
Brooklyn Paper

A note on bias:
I am researching this story as a writer & a former instructor, but I do not have a financial claim. One of the stories above suggests that teachers are seeking revenge. That isn’t what the project is about for me. I’ve been a freelancer for most of my life, and it is hard to make a living when you are financially exposed to risk by your clients. This project is about collecting and sharing research, and it was probably the experience of being a freelancer that inspired me to start the project, but I’m open to hearing all views and experiences.

Communication:
Please share this project with anyone you know who might want to contribute their experiences. Confidentiality and privacy will be respected. I send project updates via mailing list, so please subscribe if you have not already. Email me with your questions or stories at: writing@robingrearson.com.

Thank you for your support.
