ASCD Educational Leadership Presents Separate and Still Unequal: Race in America’s Schools 65 years after Brown v.
This spring marks the 65th Anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark Brown v. the Board of Education decision. In recognition of this occasion, ASCD--a nonprofit membership organization devoted whole child education--will be holding a special live event in our nation's capital to explore challenges and opportunities surrounding race in America's school today. The event will feature an in-depth conversation with leading experts on school equity in which participants will share and reflect on ideas for how today's educators and policymakers can better understand ongoing racial issues in school systems and work toward fulfilling Brown's promise of dismantling segregation and racial inequality in education. Confirmed panelists include: Becky Pringle, Vice President, National Education Association Gregory Hutchings, Superintendent, Alexandria City Public Schools Dawn Williams, Dean, School of Education, Howard University This month, ASCD published a special issue of Educational Leadership, its flagship publication, on the theme of “Separate and Still Unequal: Race in America's Schools.” The issue, which will be available for attendees of the event, will include articles by Pedro Noguera, Vanessa Siddle Walker, Beverly Daniel Tatum, Monique Morris, Mathew Kay, and H. Richard Milner IV. Founded in 1943 and dedicated to ensuring that every child is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged in school, ASCD has a long history of supporting equity and cultural diversity in U.S. education. We hope this special event for education leaders and policymakers will serve as a forum for reflection and a catalyst for change at a complex time for America’s schools.
