How Congress, States, and School Districts Can Take Action on School Diversity

  • SVC-201, Capitol Visitor Center (map)

Sixty-five years after Brown v. Board of Education, the research remains clear that integrated schools produce better outcomes for all students, and strategies to promote racial and socioeconomic diversity are being used by school districts across the country.

Please join the National Coalition on School Diversity and The Century Foundation for a congressional briefing on how all levels of government can support the growing national movement for school integration.

This congressional briefing is being held in collaboration with Rep. Robert C. “Bobby” Scott (D-VA-3), Chairman of the House Committee on Education and Labor, Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT), and Representative Marcia L. Fudge (D-OH-11).
