Brookings Institute Fellow Andre Perry says that “school districts are an heirloom of our segregated past.” Perry will join as a guest to discuss why schools predominated by students of color receive $23 billion less a year in funding than those with a majority-white population. We’ll also examine how to bring more funding to schools in Black and brown communities and whether the social services so many schools must offer are widening the learning gap. School and district leaders who are facing particularly challenging budgets won’t want to miss this episode.
