Focus on Education: Additional resources

Our Racism and the Economy: Focus on Education event will feature speakers with diverse experience working in education. The ideas presented are relevant throughout children’s lives, from before they enter the K-12 system until the time they enter college or the workforce. We have curated this list of additional resources from Federal Reserve Banks that examine race in the context of early childhood, K-12, and higher education. This collection includes policy memos from some of our presenters.
