Join Us For a Webinar on Education Redlining!
Calling all parents, teachers, students and education activists! Join us on Tuesday, July 24th, at 2 p.m. for a free webinar on education redlining!
What's redlining, you ask? It's the unethical, sometimes illegal practice of limiting residents' access to vital services in certain communities. Today it's happening in cities and schools across the country.
Is your school affected by education redlining? What can you do to fight it? Tune in Tuesday to find out! The webinar, hosted by the National Opportunity to Learn Campaign will be an informative, interactive 60-minute event 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.
We'll be joined by panelists Dr. Michael Holzman, Senior Research Consultant for the Schott Foundation for Public Education and author of A Rotting Apple: Education Redlining in New York City; and Jennifer LaFleur, Director of Computer-Assisted Reporting at ProPublica.
