“We are facing a level of inequality in access to quality schooling that is unprecedented in recent history. In a time of increasing residential and school segregation, the rise of neoliberal reforms and inequality in all facets of society, a focus on educational disparities is critical to understanding and addressing how schooling has the potential to reproduce or to disrupt the inequalities of broader society.”
