Civil Rights and Race Relations in America and Their Impact on the Lives of African Americans
Sunday, October 7, 2012
Sandra Bookman will take a look at a controversial complaint that was recently filed with the U.S. Department of Education, alleging that the sole use of test scores for entrance to specialized high schools in New York City disproportionately excludes African-American and Latino students. She'll speak about the issue with Damon Hewitt, the director of education of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and Esmeralda Simmons, the founder and executive director for the Center for Law and Social Justice at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn.
