The Duke Center for Child and Family Policy presents the Sulzberger Distinguished Lecture: Integration as Public Education Policy: Reflections on the Contours of Opportunity, featuring Marta Tienda, January 29, 3:00 to 4:30 PM, Duke University Sanford Building, Rhodes Conference Room (223).

Integration is a ubiquitous concept in the immigration literature, but segregation—its opposite—dominates academic discourse about public education. Building on Justice O’Connor’s opinion (Grutter v. Bollinger, 2013) that “[O]ur nation’s public institutions should be pursuing the larger national project of integration,” Marta Tienda argues that restoring the nation’s commitment to public education is indispensable to fuel economic competitiveness and harness demographic dividends from population diversification.
