PCCY No More Dreams Deferred Webinar
Black, Hispanic students are struggling in the suburbs.
Join PCCY’s webinar and found out why – and what you can do about it.
Learning disparities among Black and Hispanic students is an equity problem, not an “urban” problem. PCCY’s new research, for the first time ever, reveals the problems of and solutions to the entrenched racial problems in Philly’s suburban districts.
Nearly a quarter of all students in the 61 school districts in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties are Black or Hispanic, and they are less likely to be placed in rigorous classes and more likely to face harsh disciplinary action. They are less likely to have access to academic support services and more likely to be economically segregated. These factors all take a profound educational and emotional toll.
