For far too long, the zip code a student lives in has determined his or her opportunity for educational success. Our coalition is committed to eliminating this barrier so that every child can reach his or her fullest potential. So when we say “educational equity” we mean that we want to build an education system where historic barriers of racism, class and discrimination don’t determine any student’s opportunity to succeed.

Right now, we are working on the implementation of the new federal education law, Every Student Succeeds Act.
