NCSD Co-sponsoring Hill Briefing with LPI on Oct. 22

Learning Policy Institute Congressional Briefing (Virtual) – “State and Federal Opportunities to Support More Diverse and Inclusive School Systems”

On October 22, 2020, we will be partnering with the Learning Policy Institute to present the congressional briefing “State and Federal Opportunities to Support More Diverse and Inclusive School Systems.” The nation’s work towards greater racial equity and a more just society in many ways begins with more diverse and inclusive learning environments. Yet public schools are increasingly segregated along both racial and socioeconomic lines. Many of the most extremely segregated schools are also the most under-resourced, disproportionately staffed by inexperienced educators, lack of access to quality curriculum, and lack of quality facilities or access to technology. Even where there is student diversity, access to a diverse and inclusive learning environment may still be out of reach. Research shows diverse learning environments and experiences can improve outcomes for all students and help prepare them for participating in a diverse, global economy. States and the federal government can play a critical role in creating more diverse and inclusive school systems and in supporting and accelerating state and local efforts.

Hosted by the Learning Policy Institute and the National Coalition on School Diversity. Sponsored by Representative Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) and Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT).
