Johns Hopkins University is celebrating the Coleman Report’s 50th anniversary by hosting a major conference, The Coleman Report at Fifty: Its Relevance for Policy and Practice Today (October 5-6, 2016). The first day will explore recent scholarship on poverty, the family effect, and public schools.
