Receivership: Latinx Schools in the Crosshairs, with Dr. Domingo Morel
Receivership: Latinx Schools in the Crosshairs
Join us on April 27 at 7pm to hear Domingo Morel, Ph.D., describe the ways state policies such as receivership help expand or diminish political inequality among historically marginalized populations.
Dr. Domingo Morel is the author of Takeover: Race, Education, and American Democracy (Oxford University Press, 2018), which won the W.E.B. Du Bois Distinguished Book Award. He is also co-editor, with Marion Orr, of Latino Mayors: Power and Political Change in the Postindustrial City (Temple University Press, 2018).
In addition to his scholarship, he has years of applied experience in political affairs and public policy. He is co-founder and co-chair of the Latino Policy Institute at Roger Williams University and past president of the Rhode Island Latino Political Action Committee.
He received his Ph.D. in political science from Brown University in 2014.
We'll also hear from those who have directly experienced receivership in Massachusetts, and there will be an opportunity for questions and discussion.
Translation will be available for those who need it.
