Charting a path forward on school integration and educational opportunity

The Educational Opportunity Project at Stanford and The Stanford Institute for Advancing Just Societies are hosting a conference to mark the 70th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision. Join us as we bring together educators, leading scholars, and legal experts to distill the lessons of recent research on segregation and craft a new agenda for addressing racial and economic segregation in American schools.

Conference highlights

  • Opening keynote presentation with Stanford Professor Sean Reardon and USC Professor Ann Owens: The State of Segregation, 70 Years after Brown v. Board of Education
  • Research and strategy panel sessions featuring leading education, policy, and legal scholars: 
    • Panel 1: Does school integration work? Evidence on the effects of historical and contemporary school integration efforts 
    • Panel 2: What can the courts do? Legal strategies to promote school desegregation and educational equity 
    • Panel 3: What can school districts and states do? Policy strategies for integrating schools 
  • Closing Keynote and Discussion
