The Century Foundation and NYU Wagner are proud to present Debates of the Century @NYU Wagner, a public debate series showcasing thoughtful, informed dialogue from experts. Join us on February 7, 2018 to hear the experts debate the resolution:
"One of the biggest threats to education today is school segregation."
Sixty-four years after Brown v. Board of Education, segregation by race and economic class continues to persist in schools of all types, and in every state across America. But is school segregation one of the biggest threats to education today, or is it merely a distraction from deeper issues of resource allocation and poor standards?
Join us as Professor Sheryll Cashin of Georgetown University and Dr. Howard Fuller of Marquette University debate the question of how we prioritize the challenges of equity and opportunity in education policy. The debate will be moderated by the former secretary of education in the Obama administration, John B. King, Jr.
