On the eve of the sixty-ninth Anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, how can the federal government best support school integration, and what budget proposals make the most sense to expand that effort?
We know that diverse learning environments help students in elementary, secondary, and higher education sharpen their critical thinking and analytical skills, prepare all students to succeed in an increasingly diverse and interconnected world, break down stereotypes and reduce bias, and enable schools to fulfill their role in opening doors for students of all backgrounds.
Join The Century Foundation’s Bridges Collaborative, the National Coalition on School Diversity, and Magnet Schools of America on Tuesday, May 16, 2023 from 12:00 to 1:00 PM ET, as we explore what steps the federal government can take to increase its commitment to the important goal of school integration.
