How Does Your Privilege Protect You?

Hi Friends!
I’m sorry for the delay. I have been working on something that isn’t ready yet, which I’ll hopefully share in the next week or so.
I’m also meeting with Richard D. Kahlenberg at The Century Foundation early this coming week to talk about educational equity. Here’s one of his most recent publications on school integration. If you have topics or questions you’d like me to bring up, please send them to me.
In the meantime, here’s your weekly dose of resources:
