What We’re Watching: Sixty-Five Years after Brown v. Board, Where Does School Integration Stand?

On Thursday, May 2, 2019, the Urban Institute hosted a discussion on segregation in U.S. schools since Brown v. Board of Education.

Rucker Johnson, associate professor at the University of California, Berkeley, made a presentation based on his new book Children of the Dream: Why School Integration Works. Afterwards, panelists discussed current research on school integration and possible policy solutions.

Robert Abare summarized the event for Urban Wire.
