In this EquiLearn Virtual Roundtable hosted by Dr. Terah Venzant Chambers, there will be a guided panel discussion centering school choice concerns and segregation within schools. The panel, consisting of faculty and community members, will provide a historical backdrop of school choice and segregation policies and effects over time—with a particular focus on how suburban schools can better support students affected, and the impact on urban schools.


This Virtual Roundtable will assist participants in:

  • Understanding the historical influences on contemporary de/segregation patterns
  • Understanding the connection between school choice policies and de/segregation patterns
  • Understanding considerations school board members and other school leaders and community members can pursue to address these issues.


Following this virtual roundtable, you will be able to:

  • Articulate historical contexts of these issues
  • Identify and discuss policy outcomes
  • Know how to act to address these issues
