The Power of Knowing the Benefits of Diverse Schools:

From Parents' Intuition to Racially and Culturally Integrated Education

Parent University featured Dr. Amy Stuart Wells, professor of sociology and education at Columbia University, who spoke about the potential benefits of learning in diverse schools. Following Dr. Well's talk, a panel of alumni from diverse backgrounds, and work experiences shared how having gone to Portland Public Schools - Maine's most diverse school district - helped them in their postsecondary careers and beyond. A question and answer session ended this event.
