It is 7:30 a.m. A cool, bright, September morning ushers in the new school year along Jamaica Avenue near the border of Brooklyn and Queens. High school students in flat-brimmed caps and oversized tees maneuver around rumbling delivery trucks, earning honks from frustrated drivers as they head towards Franklin K. Lane High School. School won’t start for over an hour but the day is well underway for the students, who are already lining up to get through security checks before their first classes.
