Many students only learn about Black history in February. For the rest of the year, Black people are missing from textbooks and lesson plans. With ongoing attacks against African American studies in schools, help us show why learning Black history is important for all students!
Where we work
Stand with us
The Center for High School Success provides training, coaching, data analysis, peer learning opportunities, tools, and resources to help high schools substantially increase the number of 9th-graders on-track to graduate. Using the Ninth Grade Success Approach, we partner with high schools committed to becoming communities where all students excel academically, and race and socio-economic status do not predict success.
The home is a child’s first classroom. Through Home Visit Partnerships, teachers meet students’ families and learn about their lives outside of school. By confronting our own biases, and intentional two-way communication that focuses on listening and learning from families, teachers earn families’ trust which creates more support for the student. Home visits are all about building community and bridging the gap between schools and home so that students get the help and attention they need to succeed.
Classrooms have become stages for extreme politicians to advance their agenda at the expense of students’ access to the high-quality education they deserve. Learn From History is a coalition of organizations representing millions of parents, educators, students, and community members who support teaching accurate U.S. history in American public schools. Together we push back against misinformation and censorship, and strive for a thorough, fact-based history education for all students.
Kinder schools are safer schools. Kindness is a powerful, common-sense solution to some of schools’ and society’s biggest challenges. Teach Kindness provides free, research-based tools and resources to schools that want to make kindness a practical, commonplace skill. By teaching children to practice kindness on a regular basis and to manage their emotions, actions, and words, they become better equipped to navigate our complex world and these challenging times.
