Dis-Integration: A Conversation on School Segregation

Published

By

All are invited to attend a conversation — live or virtual — about the impact of school segregation on public education in San Antonio and statewide during the event Dis-Integration: A Conversation on School Segregation in Texas Feb. 26 at 6:30 p.m. at St. Philip’s College in the Bowden Alumni Center on the third floor of the college’s G. J. Sutton Learning Center at 1801 Martin Luther King Drive. The event is free and open to the public, with free parking and online access as well.

The conversation is moderated by The Texas Tribune public education reporter Aliyya Swaby and announced panelists as of Feb. 12 include:

  • State Rep. Diego Bernal, D-San Antonio, vice chair of the House Public Education Committee;
  • Diana Herrera, a former student and teacher in the Edgewood Independent School District;
  • Albert Kaufman, a professor at St. Mary’s University; and
  • Brian Sparks, network principal in the San Antonio Independent School District.

While this nonprofit event is co-hosted by both Alamo Colleges District and St. Philip’s College, it is supported by the Texas Association of School Business Officials and Pearson.

Additional support is provided by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Sid Richardson Foundation. According to its web page, “Each year we host 50-plus on-the-record, open-to-the-public live events — on college campuses, in community centers and everywhere in between — at which public officials, policy wonks and newsmakers answer for the work they’re doing and how they’re spending your tax dollars. Events are often available via livestream video, for those who can’t attend in person, and following the conversation we publish and archive video online. 

The nonpartisan Feb. 26 event is the college debut of this project. Find details on live and virtual participation by visiting the event web page
