Ryan W. Coughlan, Guttman Assistant Professor of Sociology, is a co-author of a report outlining the growing school segregation crisis in New Jersey. The report was released by the UCLA Civil Rights Project and picked up by news outlets.

“New Jersey’s Segregated Schools: Trends and Paths Forward,” written by Gary Orfield, UCLA, Civil Rights Project; Jongyeon Ee, UCLA, Civil Rights Project; and Ryan W. Coughlan, Guttman Community College, City University of New York, shows that New Jersey has made little, if any, progress toward reducing the segregation of Black and Hispanic students in the state’s schools.

Dr. Coughlan was interviewed by the Philadelphia Inquirer and WNYC’s All Things Considered about the report’s findings.
