Contemporary Civil Rights Challenges of "Brown vs. Board of Education": School Leaders Identify Current Issues
Scott, Bradley
Intercultural Development Research Association
School leaders from five states gathered recently to examine civil rights issues facing students today. The session was held by the Intercultural Development Research Association (IDRA) South Central Collaborative for Equity, which is the federally-funded equity assistance center for Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. The center's annual focus group and work session was comprised of representatives from each of the state departments of education, school districts, the Offices for Civil Rights that serve the region, and other technical assistance providers. This review served as a foundation for a set of civil rights issues the group felt were important to continue to address if the promise of Brown and Mendez are ever to be achieved. The participants then identified persistent issues regarding race, gender and national origin. A summary of their findings are found in this document.
