Event Details

Sixty-four years after Brown v. Board of Education, segregation by race and income level continues to persist (and in some cases, increase) in schools of all types across America. But is school segregation one of the biggest threats to education today, or is it merely a symptom of deeper issues, such as inadequate education resources and poor standards?

Join Debates of the Century on Wednesday, February 7, in Washington, D.C., as Professor Sheryll Cashin of Georgetown University and Dr. Howard Fuller of Marquette University debate how we should tackle segregation in education policy. The debate will be moderated by John B. King, Jr., former secretary of education in the Obama administration.
