Reaffirming the Role of School Integration in K-12 Education Policy
National Coalition on School Diversity (NJ1)
The November 13, 2009 Conference of the National Coalition on School Diversity brought together more than 300 people from across the nation. This included parents, teachers, school administrators, local and state elected leaders, long time civil rights advocates, community organizers, and government officials. Participants engaged in a substantive, compelling dialogue with representatives from the U.S. Department of Education (USDOE), the Justice Department, the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), Congressional staff, and the White House Domestic Policy Council. Participants expressed their collective concerns about the slow pace of support for voluntary school integration in the new Administration. This Statement summarizes the most important steps they believe the federal government must take in the next two years to support voluntary school integration in American public schools. It is not intended as an exhaustive recap of all the research and policy proposals presented. (Contains 5 footnotes.)
