A new study by TC's Douglas Ready, assistant professor of education, and Megan Silander, a doctoral student in TC's Leadership, Policy & Politics concentration, found that students in predominantly black or Latino elementary schools do not perform academically as well as students in mostly white or integrated classrooms. Education Week posted a story about it.

On June 12, Ready participated in a Congressional briefing on Capitol Hill that focused on promoting racial school integration. To read the Education Week story, click here.
