Lecture: "Expelling Injustice from Iowa's Schools"

Derrick Darby, Univerity of Michigan, will reflect philosophically on the issue of justice in the Iowa school system in which black students perform below the national average in test scores, have lower scores than white students, are less likely than whites to graduate high school and are four times more likely than white students to be disciplined and removed from class. The lecture is open to the public, free of charge.
