PANEL DISCUSSION | SAGAMORE HILL
SUMMARY OF DISCUSSION
Does your district look any more integrated than it was 50 years ago after the brown decision? Does the fact that children of color consistently score below Caucasian children in standardized tests concern you? Do black and brown students in your high schools and college drop out in greater percentages than white students? Do students of color in your schools have more limited access to advanced or accelerated courses in your schools? Are they suspended or punished at greater rates than the white students in your community? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, you’ll want to attend this panel discussion. Three experienced educational leaders (the former superintendent of Chicago public schools; a vice provost from a historically black college; and a professor from Columbia university) will lead a discussion surrounding closing the achievement and opportunity gaps which exist in secondary and post secondary education.
