Dr. Genevieve Siegel-Hawley of VCU has published a book titled When the Fences Come Down: Twenty-First-Century Lessons from Metropolitan School Desegregation. The book explores what happens when communities take a regional approach to addressing persistent school segregation, rather than just focusing on improving schools only by raising academic standards, holding teachers and students accountable through test performance, and promoting private-sector competition.

The book talk will examine what the Richmond community has done about school integration and aims to spark a conversation about the important links between school and housing policy.

This event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow the book talk. Sponsored by the Graduate Education program and the Center for Leadership in Education.
