Why School Integration Matters for Cities
12:30 p.m. | Thursday, October 3, 2019
The new book Children of the Dream studies school integration efforts in the 1970s and ’80s and shows that students of all races who attended integrated and well-funded schools were more successful in life than those who did not. Unfortunately, the United States has taken steps backward since that time. If we are to create equitable and inclusive cities that improve opportunities for the next generation, one key step is to examine how to better integrate our schools. Come discuss school integration, why it works and why it matters.
