This virtual panel organized by the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy and the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability is co-hosted by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy in partnership with the Office of Management and Budget. This event will explore the disproportionately negative impact of historical disinvestment in public colleges and universities for Black and Latinx young people and families. Using Illinois as a case study, we examine the relationship between support for higher education, student loan debt, and racial wealth gaps and offer policies that have proven effective in making high quality public higher education more affordable.
