Join ACPS Superintendent Dr. Gregory Hutchings and Georgetown Professor Dr. Douglas Reed as they unpack structural racism throughout the history of Alexandria’s education system.

Join ACPS Superintendent Dr. Gregory Hutchings and Georgetown Professor Dr. Douglas Reed as they unpack structural racism throughout the history of Alexandria’s education system and identify pathways toward equity in a post-pandemic world.

Dr. Reed will provide the historical background: his book, Building the Federal Schoolhouse, is an in-depth analysis of the city’s schools over the past 50 years, following ACPS through the Jim Crow era, court-ordered desegregation, and the Southern strategy against those desegregation efforts known as “massive resistance.”

Dr. Hutchings will discuss ACPS's new strategic plan, which focuses on equity, and his thoughts on race and education today in Alexandria. Special focus will be paid to covid-19 and its disproportionate impacts on communities of color, from poorer health outcomes, economic losses, and lack of digital access.
