Building on Brown v. Board of Education
On the 64th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, the New Jersey Coalition for Diverse and Inclusive Schools filed suit to integrate New Jersey schools and fix the state’s segregated education system, ranked the 6th most segregated in the country.
Join the ACS to learn about the groundbreaking case and policies that drive longstanding discrimination. Speakers will discuss New Jersey’s history leading the way in civil rights, with landmark decisions that promote residential integration and ensure fair funding for poor urban schools. The webinar will address proposed remedies to integrate schools.
