Equity Education

Working toward equity and justice in our schools and classrooms requires us all to investigate the history and impacts of the policies, biases, and events that have led us to this moment. Join us and Dr. Hasan Kwame Jeffries for this webinar and explore the root causes of educational inequities that still affect students today. Together, we learn about the history of the United States’s education system and gain understanding of actions we can take to begin to break down generations of inequity in schools.
