Critical Reflections about Equity in Education with Dr. John B. King and Dr. Janice K. Jackson

Amid the upheaval of the global pandemic and worldwide demonstrations against systemic racism, essential questions about equity in education have taken center stage. Dr. John B. King Jr., CEO of The Education Trust and former US Secretary of Education, and Dr. Janice K. Jackson, CEO of Chicago Public Schools, discuss the role of education during moments of national reckoning and the importance of civic agency in our classrooms. This couldn’t be better highlighted than in our unique partnership with Dr. Jackson and the Chicago Public School system, where we are training all middle and high school social science teachers to teach three of our core case studies. This is the first conversation in the year-long Facing History Now: Conversations on Equity and Justice virtual event series.
