A new study by the Center for Racial Equity and Education or CREED finds that students of color have diminished access to resources that affect their success – including advanced coursework, experienced teachers and the racial/ethnic matching of students and educators. Those factors not only impact how a student feels about their K-12 education, it can rob children of their full potential. James Ford is the executive Director of CREED and co-author of the study E(Race)ing Inequities: The State of Racial Equity in North Carolina Public Schools.
