Inequities Within Presentation: Special Topic - Education
Howard County Library System’s Inequity Within report presents data and shows local history of racial inequity and its ongoing impact on education, health, housing, and criminal justice in Howard County and the state of Maryland.
This report provides an overview of racial equity across education, healthcare, housing, economic, and legal systems within Howard County, Maryland. As one of the wealthiest, healthiest and most diverse communities in the state and the US, the perception or belief that racial inequity does not exist here can be a hinderance to advancing issues of equity within the county. This report demonstrates that even in a county where the majority of residents appear to be thriving, there are communities and subgroups that do not fully reap the benefits of residing here.
This session will be a special topic discussion of education related outcomes as presented in the recently released Howard County Library System’s Brave Voices Brace Choices Data Report on issues of inequity. Using publicly available data and information, the report calls attention to differences in education readiness, school attendance and student social and emotional well-being. Attendees will have an opportunity to discuss these issues, other education concerns and their impact on youth attending school within Howard County.
