The ripple effects of historically inequitable institutions—from education to healthcare to housing and beyond—are resulting in severe and long-lasting impacts on our students and families of color. Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and People of Color (BILPOC) families and students are potentially facing continued compounded inequities.
We have an unprecedented opportunity to take action. School districts and charter networks are facing both tremendous challenges and, simultaneously, opportunities to design and implement effective, culturally-aligned systems to support historically marginalized students.
The time is now—and the moment is urgent—for school districts, charter networks and organizations to join efforts to turn the tide that is having devastating impacts on our students.
