“This summer Dr. Acosta Price is teaching a graduate class on School Health and Safety. At the root of many topics is how schools receive funding, and most students are surprised to learn that only about 10% of support comes from the federal government. The rest is decided between states and local districts – often reflecting and perpetuating disparities that exist because of unequal distributions of wealth and social capital. Coming to this realization and identifying it as a problem (an injustice) isn’t difficult, but adopting solutions that bring meaningful change is harder to do. And that’s the premise behind a series featured on NPR, ‘School Money: the cost of Opportunity.’”
