We will work with three groups: parents and students, school professionals, and legislators. We will work independently to highlight research on current educational dilemmas that increase the achievement gap, speed up the school to prison pipeline, and worsen the economic welfare of families in our community. In addition to identifying the source of educational dilemmas, we will identify solutions. Our goal is to be a community partner that closes the conceptual gaps between problems and solutions. Therefore, we will participate in and host community events that heighten awareness of the educational dilemmas in our community. Finally, as advocates, we will target laws and policies, policy makers, and legislators that influence the educational experience.
