Leveling the Playing Field in Education
May 15, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 4:00 pm EDT
On May 17, 1954 the Supreme Court ruled that separating children in public schools on the basis of race was unconstitutional. It signaled the end of legalized racial segregation in the schools of the United States, overruling the “separate but equal” principle set forth in the 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson case. Despite this ruling, we continue to see an uneven playing field. What can we do about it? What are we doing about it?
Join Us on Saturday, May 15th for a series of Fireside Chats and Workshops where we explore opportunities for students, teachers, and ALL stakeholders in education to learn about current initiatives and future opportunities to ensure a Level Playing Field in Education. Our Closing Keynote Speaker, Ricky Williams, spent 11 seasons in the NFL and also won the Heisman Trophy as a student at the University of Texas. As CEO of a tech company, Ricky will share more on his journey and experience transitioning into the world of computing as an entrepreneur.
