CUTLINE Special | Sheff v. O’Neill: Striving Toward Education Equity
The Sheff v. O’Neill lawsuit and its resulting school integration programs offer a unique and compelling look into critical societal issues as lived by Connecticut families, and have become a national model even while generating controversy in Connecticut.
In recent years, nearly half of Hartford’s students attended racially and economically integrated schools, yet more than half still attend low-performing Hartford schools, prompting a recent lawsuit challenging the underpinnings of Sheff.
This program originally aired on November 18, 2021.
