What's it like to be a student of color in a predominantly white classroom and school district? As we continue to look at how race plays out in American society, and as stories of racism experienced by students in white schools abound on social media, we're asking that question.
We take listener calls and hear from Tashana Bailey, a METCO parent in the Arlington Public School system and former employee of that school system. She is also a former METCO student herself.

This segment aired on July 22, 2020.
