Your Call: Are our schools re-segregating?

Mar 22, 2015

On the March 23rd edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about how school choice programs affect diversity in schools.  According to the San Francisco School District’s Student Assignment report, since 2010, the number of San Francisco’s 115 public schools dominated by one race has climbed significantly. What is the school district doing to diversify schools? Why does diversity matter? And how diverse are schools in your community? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests
