Racial Justice Discussion Group: "Nice White Parents Podcast"

The Racial Justice Discussion Group is gathering together on Zoom to start a new podcast, “Nice White Parents,” followed by a discussion on what we’ve learned.

This is a five-part series about building a better school system, and what gets in the way. It looks at a 60-year relationship between white parents and the public school down the block.

We know American public schools do not guarantee each child an equal education. Two decades of school reform initiatives have not changed that. But when Chana Joffe-Walt, a reporter, looked at inequality in education, she saw that most reforms focused on who schools were failing: Black and brown kids. But what about who the schools are serving? In this five-part series, she turns her attention to what is arguably the most powerful force in our schools: White parents.
