This week we bring you an education-themed podcast in two acts. First we’ll talk about campus coverage, specifically investigations into Title IX and sexual assault. In Act II we’ll turn to K-12 education with a piece on school segregation. Here’s the lineup:
- Paula Lavigne and Nicole Noren of ESPN talk about their investigation into Title IX complaints on college campuses.
- Nikole Hannah-Jones of ProPublica discusses the state of school segregation 60 years after the Brown v. Board of Education decision.
