Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Calls for Greater Efforts to Ensure Educational Equity

The Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force included language in their recommendations calling for a redoubling of efforts to further educational equity during a Biden administration:

“It is unacceptable that America’s public schools are more racially segregated today than they were when Brown v. Board of Education was decided 66 years ago. Democrats support appointing judges who will enforce the Civil Rights Act in schools and will fund magnet schools and school transportation initiatives to help facilitate improved integration. We will also reinvigorate and increase funding for the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights and improve federal data collection on racial segregation in schools. Schools should be safe zones for children and their families, which is why Democrats will protect sensitive locations like schools from immigration enforcement actions and will ensure English language learners receive the support they need to succeed.”
