Race, Education, and the Labor Market: Where Do We Go From Here?
Panelists: Stella Flores, New York University; Michael Lovenheim, Cornell University; William Rodgers III, Rutgers University
There are large racial and ethnic differences in educational and labor market outcomes. Policies that are designed to ensure that the all groups enjoy the benefits of educational and labor market success are quite controversial and likely to garner more attention in today's charged political environment. We invite you to join us as we engage three renowned scholars who can describe what such policies have done and what must be done for the doors of opportunity to remain open to all.
