Leading Urban Schools in the New Jim Crow: Education, Leadership, and Policy

After decades of desegregation efforts, school choice, and other attempts to close the “achievement gap,” the effective education of Black children remains an elusive goal. In this session, panelists will discuss the challenges facing Black teachers and leaders as they work to educate Black children, youth, and young adults in urban communities.
