About Who Gets to Be a Taxpayer? Race, Tax Policy and Segregation

Who Gets to Be a Taxpayer? Race, Tax Policy and Segregation

Presented by Camille Walsh, Associate Professor, School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences, University of Washington Bothell

“Taxpayer” has long been a loaded word in U.S. politics, and tax policy plays a critical role in local systems of education across the country. This talk will examine the ways in which this seemingly simple word can often be racially coded — and how the creation and structure of certain tax policies have helped entrench racial and economic inequality in public education, both historically and today.
