Some are thinking of it as the next fight in the civil rights movement — How to ensure every child has the constitutional right to a quality education.
Two weeks ago, The 74 and the Reinventing America’s Schools project of the Progressive Policy Institute brought you a spirited discussion about a growing movement to create a new right around quality schools — and tools parents can use to demand change in their districts.
At 3 p.m. ET today, we’ll present part two in the ongoing conversation, spotlighting grassroots methods and organizing strategies being used in various states to secure such a right.
Expert panelists will be Minnesota state Rep. Hodan Hassan, Chris Stewart of Brightbeam, Nevada Littlewolf of Our Children Minnesota, Lakisha Young of The Oakland REACH and Christina Laster of the National Parents Union.
You can stream the conversation by refreshing this page at 3 p.m.
