About the Talk

Why do gaps in academic achievement persist among racial and ethnic groups?  How is academic achievement connected to social, economic, and political forces? What can be done to eliminate inequities related to academic achievement? We bring together five experts in Education and Sociology to discuss real strategies for addressing these questions in policy and in practice.

This event is sponsored by the Departments of Sociology and African American Studies
