Starting March 8
The reading group tasked to understand better the problems that uniquely effect urban areas is tackling education next.
Racism, poverty and privilege are inexorably linked to the access and continuity of quality education. Why is it that we as a society stand for the underfunding and underperforming in our schools today?
Additionally, urban schools are some of the most egregious fortresses of racial segregation. Jay Gillen suggests revolution.
Come and join provocative discussion identifying the failures associated with the process of desegregation. And, brainstorm some solutions.
