Civil Rights and the Achievement Gap:

Strategic Planning for Social Justice

Since 1964, when the Civil Rights Act was signed into law, public school systems across the country have, despite valiant efforts, been unsuccessful at bridging the achievement gap.  Carlos García calls this gap the greatest civil rights issue in America.  Mr. García will speak about San Francisco Unified School District’s strategic plan that dares to diminish the predictive power of demographics and to make social justice a reality by igniting a civil rights movement in every school across the city.

 

This lecture is free and open to the public.
