VIRTUAL EVENT: Segregation, the Suburbs, and Education Funding: Kids and Schools in America’s Unequal Communities

Join New America’s Education Funding Equity Initiative for a virtual discussion with Zahava Stadler and Benjamin Herold, moderated by Nirvi Shah, about the geographies that define family and educational opportunity in today’s America. The discussion will delve into New America's report, Crossing the Line: Segregation and Resource Inequality Between America's School Districts, that shows where the racial and economic divides between neighboring districts are the deepest, and explains the racial injustice behind these geographies of inequity. Benjamin Herold will also discuss his new book Disillusioned and describe how and why America’s suburbs and their public schools have ceased to be a reliable gateway to opportunity.
