Public schools are among America’s greatest achievements in modern history, yet from the earliest days of tax-supported education—today a sector with an estimated budget of over half a billion dollars—there have been intractable tensions tied to race and poverty. Now, in an era characterized by levels of school segregation the country has not seen since the mid-twentieth century, cultural critic and American studies professor Noliwe Rooks provides a trenchant analysis of our separate and unequal schools and argues that profiting from our nation’s failure to provide a high-quality education to all children has become a very big business.

This event is co-sponsored by The Baltimore Movement of Rank-and-File Educators (BMORE), a diverse group of educators committed to advancing quality public schools and the labor movement. Learn more at bmorecaucus.org.
