NYC Public High School Haiku
This is a haiku generator that extracts rhetoric used within different NYC public high school’s descriptions in the 2018 directory. It is accompanied by statistics on how students are performing or feeling about the educational environment within these same schools. The roses are meant to symbolize both the almost “flowery” language of the schools’ descriptions that are usually contradictory to the students’ experiences; and how too many NYC public school students have to almost be roses that grow from concrete in order to be successful in these environments.
Every time you refresh the page it generates a new haiku and set of statistics
