Part of the belief in American social mobility rests largely upon our faith that opportunity comes through education, and having access to quality primary education is one indicator of future success. How well does the Bay Area provide lower-income residents with access to quality schools? Are we making progress, or are the systems in place propagating the widespread income inequality already seen across the region? In the final part of a three-part series, we’ll discuss whether quality public education can reduce the opportunity and equity gaps and what can be done to turn the tables. Co-presented by KQED.
