Urban Youth Justice presents: The Color of Education - Academic Segregation: Milwaukee School Vouchers vs. Special Education/Special Needs/Disability Youth

Join host Ernest Saadiq Morris, Esq. of Urban Youth Justice in a conversation with Jeffrey Spitzer-Resnick, managing attorney of Disability Rights Wisconsin, and Courtney Bowie, senior attorney of the ACLU Racial Justice progam, regarding their civil rights complaint to the U.S. Justice Department against the Milwaukee school vouchers program--for its exclusion of students with special needs & disabilities from enrollment in private voucher schools.

They examine how all students left behind in Milwaukee's public schools face the negative effects of a segregated learning environment.

They also discuss how disadvantaged communities of color are publicly funding this eductional discrimination that undermines their own struggle for community justice and educational equality.
