Foundation Update
October 27, 2020 Delia Reid

We are inspired and guided by the work of our grantees and partners who are elevating the need to renew the promise of public education and to disrupt longstanding inequities, and to make schools places that foster intellectual curiosity and that center shared human connection by build strong relationships between educators and students – especially for students of color, foster youth, English Learners and those who face systemic barriers to opportunity.

Over the past few months, our grantees have produced a number of essential and timely reports and resources that help us understand what is needed during this time: effective, equity-driven responses by systems for families. In addition to the insights offered in each resource, these publications taken together call for policymakers and educators to listen and learn as deeply as possible during this disruption to traditional schooling – which is not affecting all students equally. We are pleased to share these resources and invite you to apply this information in reimagining how schools can advance equitable outcomes and success for young people in this moment and over the long-term.
