Video: Bridging the Education Equity Gap

September 03, 2013 By Briana Johnson, Video Production Specialist

What are we doing as a community to make sure our children are learning and ready for the future? NOC (Neighborhoods Organizing for Change) recently sponsored a forum for parents, children, educators and community members to discuss the critical issues facing our urban schools. Jitu Brown, a community organizer out of Chicago, helped guide the discussion.
