Event description

Description

“Redlining” refers to the unethical, sometimes illegal practice of limiting residents’ access to vital services in certain communities. In June 2012, The Schott Foundation for Public Education published a report called A Rotting Apple: Education Redlining in New York City, which highlighted the wide disparities in the opportunities to learn available to New York City students both between Community School Districts and from school to school within them. Sadly, redlining is not simply a New York City phenomenon. Similar situations are taking place in cities such as Philadelphia and Chicago and across a number of different states including California, Texas, and Ohio.

Education justice advocates must fight redlining in their communities, but how do they go about determining if it is taking place in their schools? What resources are available for assessing the opportunity gaps that are present in your school district and state? If your school is being redlined, what can you do to stop it? Join the National Opportunity to Learn Campaign for an informative and interactive 60-minute webinar that will discuss redlining across the country, resources to help you assess if and where it is taking place and action steps you and other education justice advocates can take to expose redlining and put an end to it now.

PANELISTS:
Dr. Michael Holzman, Senior Research Consultant and author of A Rotting Apple: Education Redlining in New York City, The Schott Foundation for Public Education
Jennifer LaFleur, Director of Computer-Assisted Reporting, ProPublica
