Paige Is Featured Speaker at Harvard Commemoration of Brown

Members of the HGSE Faculty: [Harvard Graduate School of Education]

You are cordially invited to "50 Years after Brown: What Has Been Accomplished and What Remains to Be Done?"--a conference commemorating the 50th anniversary of the historic Brown vs. the Board of Education decision.

Many groups will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Brown, but the PEPG conference will be unique in two respects.

First, it will draw upon and synthesize the best available educational research to help clarify what needs to be done in the next 25 years to fulfill the promises of Brown. In posing this question, it will consider the promise of a broad range of policy alternatives, such as further school
desegregation, school choice, accountability, preschool programs and greater resource commitments.

Second, it will examine the key legal issues associated with each of these policy alternatives.

We have invited a fantastic group of scholars to present original research and legal papers towards this purpose. Please find the specific information about the conference that follows.
