E(RACE)ing Inequities

Nicholas Triplett, Ph.D. (The University of North Carolina at Charlotte Faculty Lecturer) and James Ford (CREED Executive Director) compiled this report detailing the state of racial inequity within North Carolina public schools, the implications and outcomes, the impacts of intersectional identities (gender, socioeconomic status, etc.) on academic outcomes, barriers of the access to educational resources and beyond. The analysis resulted in clear picture of non-Asian students of color disadvantaged across areas ranging from access to rigorous coursework and experienced teachers to increased disciplinary suspensions. The report provides vital information and context surrounding inequitable structures and patterns within the public education system, and the subsequent interventions and actionable items to address and counteract the disparities.

This document would be helpful in informing intervention and providing an overview of racial equity and the North Carolina school systems.
