Brown v. Board of Education

The Brown v. Board of Education decision, six decades old this weekend, brought hope of equal education for all. In our first hour, we explore whether that hope was justified. We’ve gathered four distinguished educators and scholars for this special discussion: Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers; Leticia Smith-Evans, interim director of the Education Project at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund; Gary Orfield, co-director of the Civil Rights Project at UCLA; and Billy Easton, executive director of the Alliance for Quality Education, a coalition of parents and community groups who are fighting for high-quality education for all students in New York.
