Healing Racism Series: Race and Education

The U.S. education system has rampant problems and more than 60 years after Brown v. Board of Education, school systems in the United States continue to be separate and unequal. Gaping differences for students of color have created an education system that does not serve its children properly. Zero-tolerance discipline policies, gaps in achievement, disparate access to resources along with biased political agendas foster inequalities.

Engage with experts, community leaders, students, and peers as we examine disparities in education and learn how to impact systems that do not prioritize equal education for all students.

This is the final forum in a series addressing the theme of "Difficult Dialogues."
