Racial Equity and Community-Informed Policies

The K-12 Education team intentionally applies an explicit race and resource equity lens to our policy and research agenda. This means looking at potential impacts on communities who do not identify as white or who have large concentrations of families with low incomes, without conflating the two. We aim to set a standard where equity is not just a trendy concept, but rather one centered in all education policymaking and practice, and where institutional racism is called out and addressed as a barrier to progress. See the K-12 Education team’s other core priority areas:

  1. College, Career, and Civic Readiness
  2. Modernizing and Elevating the Teaching Profession
  3. Investment and Funding Equity in Public Education
