Topic: Unmasking the Realities: Racial Equity in Education on Thursday, August 27, 2020 | 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Racial equity is corrective justice for communities that have suffered oppression due to a long history of legislated or institutionalized racism. Many people may not realize there is an equity problem in education because their individual experiences or biases don’t allow them to see inequity. Yet there are visible disparities in student outcomes, teacher performance, curriculum, admission practices and more linked to race.
