VIDEO: FORUM on ACADEMIC DIVERSITY

Watch the video from our May 9 forum on academic diversity.

 

On May 9 the CEC2 held a forum about integrating our schools. We were joined by education experts Amy Stuart-Wells, Kelly McGuire, and Lindsay Oaks, and a high school student for a discussion about benefits of a classroom with diverse learners and how we create and nurture such a learning environment.

 

Our current middle school admissions system sorts students by academic performance, resulting in many schools with students of similar abilities. This system of sorting leads to racially and socioeconomically segregated schools. The forum explored the benefits of mixing students of all academic levels.
