    Examining New Models and Frameworks to Advance Racial and Economic Justice in the U.S.

    Recent experience suggests that established systems of American education, civic engagement, and employment mobility are disserving people and institutions across our nation. This is especially the case for historically excluded populations of color, women, and other groups that make up a growing majority of society and whose struggles for justice have been met with rejection by establishment forces. As conventional approaches have fallen short, new, more racially, culturally, and economically inclusive policy models and practice frameworks are required to advance a more responsible 21st-century system of learning, civic engagement, and workforce development in the United States.

    Featuring leading practitioners, scholars, and public intellectuals, this five-part series, sponsored by Carnegie Corporation of New York, is designed to lift up big ideas and innovative thought and offer actionable insights to education professionals, advocates, policy leaders, philanthropy and social investment executives, journalists, and the general public.
