"The Racial Realities of School Choice in Our Nation's Capital"
Presentation Summary from Taaj Davis:
This presentation will focus on the increasing role that charter schools play in the education of American children. The last two decades or so have featured major movements towards school choice and this has manifested in a large boom of charter schools in urban environments. By closely analyzing some of the stories from The SEED School in my hometown of Washington, D.C., I hope to shed light onto some of the less talked about issues in this ongoing conversation of school choice. More specifically, I will convey the ways in which the expansion of school choice has directly and indirectly impacted communities of color.
