Practical questions remain for how to move forward productively in the face of the divisive debate over what place education for racial literacy should have in schools. What should the nature of this debate be? How should we be thinking about the balance between principles and pragmatism? How can funders support those seeking to advance an equity agenda in ways that allow different communities to be heard and engaged?
In session three of this series on critical race theory, Dr. John Garcia, president of the Greater LA Education Foundation and Sara Sneed, president and CEO of The NEA Foundation, will explore these questions and more with Dr. Ian Haney López, a leading expert in building cross-racial solidarity. The audience will be invited to join the conversation to dig deeper into the role for funders in building and sustaining an equity agenda in education during this significant time in history.
