Exploring the Potential of HBCUs as Charter School Authorizers to Address Educational Inequality

The influence of Historically Black Colleges and Universities in shaping the futures of college students — especially those from underprivileged backgrounds — is well established. However, what measures can HBCUs implement to assist students in gaining access to these institutions?

Join The 74 and the Progressive Policy Institute at 1 p.m. ET Thursday for a virtual panel discussion exploring the potential of HBCUs as charter school authorizers, offering enhanced oversight and governance to ensure improved educational prospects for students. The panel will feature leading experts Dr. Nina Gilbert from Morehouse College, Dr. Karega Rausch from the National Association of Charter School Authorizers, and Dr. Evelyn Edney from Delaware State University.

Register for the Zoom session here or watch the event live on this page Thursday at 1 p.m. ET.
