Today we celebrate the 65th Anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education.
This momentous Supreme Court decision has led to important changes across the Nation. But those of us serving at promise students, particularly African-American and Latino students, continue to see inequities in education. The disproportionate rates of dropouts among students of color is powerful evidence that more needs to be done.
Our conference focuses on youth who most need personalized learning and wrap around supports. Our attendees come closer to representing the racial and ethnic diversity of our student population than most education conferences.
The collaboration at the Alternative Accountability Policy Forum is palpable. As you take time to reflect on the progress that has been made and all that needs to be done, remember the Brown Court finding that education is a right which must be made available to all on equal terms. There’s still much to be done to make this aspiration a reality.
