At Conor O'Neill's Traditional Irish Pub 318 S. Main St.  

We are familiar with the disparities in educational outcome for students of different races and ethnicities in our public schools - gaps in funding, achievement, graduation rates and disproportionate discipline are some of the challenges our educational systems face. What does our local data look like? What does research say are some of the sources of these gaps and what new projects are underway? Join Dr. Shayla Griffin, Research Fellow at the U-M School of Education, AAPS Board Trustee Simone Lightfoot and Eastern Michigan University Professor Ronald Woods to discuss race and public education.
