The Changing Face of Schools

think.kera.org 4

Schools in the U.S. have been formally desegregated for more than 60 years. That doesn’t mean that race doesn’t remain a part of education, though. As part of KERA’s American Graduate series, we’re partnering with the public radio show Houston Matters for a discussion of how students’ racial backgrounds affect the quality of their schooling. We’ll be joined by University of Pittsburgh professor H. Richard Milner, author of “Rac(e)ing to Class” (Harvard Education Press), as well as Linda McSpadden McNeil of the Rice University Center for Education.
