MCE is a Proud Sponsor of Standing in the Gap

The Morgridge College of Education is proud to partner with  the Diversity Summit, and other community members to bring you Standing in the Gap, part one of the Race in Colorado initiative.

Twenty years after the end of federally mandated busing, Denver Public Schools are re-segregated. Today, staggering educational achievement gaps exist between white students and those of color. As part of its ongoing coverage of race in Colorado, Rocky Mountain PBS took an in-depth look at race and education.

MCE will be hosting a special screening with a reception and panel discussion. You can register here.
