Austin’s diverse student population offers great potential for the creation of dynamic and inclusive learning environments. However, the racial and economic divides in the city also pose significant challenges for educational access and equity. Join us for the third in our Opportunity Forum 2015-2016 Lunch Series, featuring policymakers, school district stakeholders, and UT faculty working to positively address racial, ethnic, and economic disparities in education in the Austin metropolitan area.
