Unfulfilled: The Promise of Equal Education

Pennsylvania does a particularly poor job of educating its minority children. According to a 2017 study from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, a child-welfare organization, Pennsylvania ranked 32nd in how well its African-American children performed in school, the lowest among states in the Northeast. For Latinos, it was even worse: Pennsylvania ranked 48th. That topic will be discussed in full by a panel at The August Wilson African American Cultural Center. The talk, entitled Unfulfilled: The Promise of Equal Education, will include insight from community activist Michael David Battle, Slippery Rock University professor Fadoua Loudiy, and others. The panel discussion takes place in Gallery 1.
