New York, NY – Last week, Khan’s Tutorial leaders rallied with community organizers and elected officials at Queens Borough Hall in support of the SHSAT.

Additionally, education advocates have called for greater New York Bangladeshi involvement in support of the current admissions criteria.
New York, NY – Yesterday, NY1 Spectrum’s 30-minute documentary on the Specialized High School process featured Khan’s Tutorial’s SHSAT Program.

KT CEO & President, Dr. Ivan Khan spoke about the growth and impact of test preparation in the South Asian NYC community. For many low-income new immigrant families, the SHSAT has been a pathway out of poverty.
Manhattan, NY – Last week, several community based organizations gathered for two rallies to show support for the SHSAT.
