Our 2014 conference, held last Spring in Philadelphia, focused on the reasons behind varying educational outcomes for students of different races and discuss possible solutions to the problem. The goal of the conference was to directly engage the issue mobilizing most school reform movements, the disparity of educational outcomes between white students and racial minorities, and bluntly discuss the causes of this phenomenon and debate the efficacy of different policies aimed at combating this injustice.
