SD Notebook is now a part of NCSD!

This is a short post to announce a bit of news that I’m excited about: the SD Notebook has recently been added as an official member of the National Coalition on School Diversity. If you aren’t familiar with it, NCSD is a group of researchers and advocates who work to expand political/social support for meaningful school integration. It is run by the Poverty & Race Research Action Council and includes majorly influential organizations, like the Southern Poverty Law Center, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and the Civil Rights Project at UCLA, among many others who are mentioned frequently on this blog and whose work inspired its very existence. At the end of this post, I’ve copied the full list of member organizations with links to each.

Here’s an overview of some of the things they do:

Also, I was thrilled to find this among the resources on the NCSD research page – it’s a Diversity in Education Database that has archived research related to race/gender/SES and student outcomes. I did quick searches for “school choice” and “magnet schools” and found lots of interesting articles.

There’s plenty more that I don’t have the space to write about here. If you are new to NCSD, I definitely encourage you to sign up here for their monthly newsletter.

In response to the rapid rate of school resegregation and of course the Trump election, the school integration movement is growing rapidly and gaining a larger audience. NCSD is a driving force in the movement, with inspiring individuals and organizations who have been leading this fight for decades. I’m excited and honored to be a part of it.
