2019 Convening: “Education as a Civil Right”

It is often said that “Education is the civil rights movement of our time,” but what does that mean for educators, advocates, the community and our leaders as they work to ensure better outcomes for students? Communities are still grappling with issues of equity and opportunity remains unequally distributed 65 years after Brown vs. the Board of Education. Join us as we engage national, state and local thought leaders in a conversation to explore how Baton Rouge and the nation can deliver on the promise of education as the pathway to the American Dream.
