“Inequality, schooling, and educational opportunity in America” with Sean Reardon

The Educational Opportunity Project at Stanford University is focused on measuring educational opportunity in every community in America. Using data from 400 million standardized tests taken in the last decade by students in every public school in the U.S., the Project helps us understand how educational opportunities differ across communities, races, and income groups. Moreover, it helps us understand what role schools, families, and neighborhoods play in shaping educational opportunity at different points in the life course. In this talk, Sean Reardon will describe the Educational Opportunity Project and what our research reveals about race, income, and educational opportunity in the U.S.

The in-person cap for the student discussion is 50 and evening presentation will be capped at 75 in-person.
