EQUITY MATTERS EP. 3: Race & School Spending




Bob Bifulco and Sarah Souders join to discuss their latest research on racial disparities in school poverty and spending. They find that the typical Black and Hispanic student is exposed to nearly twice the rate of school poverty compared to the typical White student. In addition, cost-adjusted spending in the typical Black and Hispanic students’ schools is only 88% of that in the average white student’s school. They examine how state-level and district-level policies cause (and can ameliorate) these racial disparities. Hosted/edited/mixed by Tyler Bond.
