A Call to Higher Ideals: Systems Change & Equity

A strong K-12 public education system is essential for a democracy and civil society to thrive. It is time to build a system on the core principle that all students can succeed. Join this session for advancing thinking to elevate the hard questions about the purpose of our education systems. We should raise our collective consciousness and ask whether today’s systems are fit for purpose and do they meet the needs of each and every learner.
