Teach-In: Racial Bias in Pennsylvania Public Education Funding

Feb 27, 2018 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

New Testament Professor Greg Carey will offer a teach-in for the Seminary community on "Racial Bias in Pennsylvania Public Education Funding." 

Dr. Carey writes: "Did you know that among all 50 states Pennsylvania ranks No. 1 in funding disparity when keyed to race? We can filter out for poverty and other factors, and race remains the primary determinant of public education inequities in the Commonwealth. I'm hoping our conversation will provide resources for you to understand the problem and be willing to take action to accomplish change. During the teach-in we'll watch this video, discuss how we understand it to relate to our own contexts, and provide means for following through."
