Professors Oluwole and Green consider how raceconscious implementation of the No Child Left Behind Act could affect the racial achievement gap in the United States. Their article addresses challenges states and school districts are confronted with in attempting to overcome racial achievement gaps while facing decreasing budgets and mandatory procedures. They evaluate the feasibility of race-conscious school funding in the context of the Act's purposes and past challenges to school financing schemes. Professors Oluwole and Green emphasize the necessity of raceconscious school funding, both as a social justice matter and a practical matter for the future of American education.
