New Federal Legislation Seeks to Increase Diversity within Public School System


With data pointing to increased segregation in the U.S. education system, two Capitol Hill lawmakers have introduced legislation to increase diversity in public schools across the nation.

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), member of the U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, and Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge (D-Ohio), ranking member of the Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education of the U.S. House Committee on Education and the Workforce, recently introduced the Stronger Together School Diversity Act of 2016.

The bill would provide grants to states to plan and implement new and help expand existing community-grown diversity initiatives.
