Education and the Regional Agenda

Education and the Regional Agenda

(p.133) Chapter Six Education and the Regional Agenda
When the Fences Come Down

Genevieve Siegel-Hawley

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter underscores key findings from the original analysis and argues that they strengthen a robust evidence base supporting the need to more strongly insert education onto the regional agenda. While the chapter reviews the limitations of and difficult politics surrounding metropolitan school desegregation, it offers solutions targeted toward an array of actors. The chapter showcases the need for comprehensive social policy to address the multidimensional issues that perpetuate segregation and inequality across regional spaces. These overlapping policies should confront school segregation in tandem with the housing, transportation and employment issues that are often the focus of current conversations about regionalism. The conclusion of the book also carefully highlights other communities that exemplify school district consolidation and regional cooperation today. The barriers involved should not halt the push towards educational regionalism, the chapter argues, as demographic changes and rising inequality make such efforts increasingly urgent.
