NCSD in Charlotte: The National Coalition on School Diversity and the new organization Brown’s Promise will co-host a panel session at the Southern Education Foundation’s “Miles to Go: Fulfilling the Promise of Racial Equity in Education” Issues Forum in Charlotte, NC, November 14-17. The session, “Fulfilling Brown’s Promise: Examining and Addressing the Link Between School Funding Inequities and Segregation,” will highlight the interconnections between school segregation and inequitable school funding, examine their effects on equal educational opportunities, and chart a path for addressing school segregation and school funding in tandem. Moderated by Professor Derek Black, NCSD member and also guest editor of PRRAC’s recent school finance special issue of Poverty & Race, the session will draw on insights and lessons from the special issue and attendees will learn about new strategies and tactics at the intersection of funding equity and school desegregation.
