Education Experts Discuss Issues Around Desegregating Schools After Baltimore Sun Series
A group of educators and education experts discussed the challenges in closing racial achievement gaps and desegregating schools in a Baltimore Sun forum on Wednesday night following the Sun’s “Bridging the Divide” series.
In a four-part series published this month, The Baltimore Sun detailed the difficulties leaders face in integrating schools by race and class whether through a redistricting in southwest Baltimore County or in classrooms in Howard County.
Some of the panelists said race had previously been a conversation few in Baltimore would touch. Some were optimistic about local school systems’ ability to overcome segregation.
