A lack of teacher diversity. Inadequate funding for K-12. The rising cost of college tuition. How can education be the great equalizer in the face of these obstacles? Black Washingtonians, specifically Black students, are lagging behind and not reaching their full potential. For example, only 45% of Black children are enrolled in preschool compared to 53% of their peers. The release of a new study, “Creating an Equitable Future for Black Washingtonians”, uncovers this alarming research and much more. The study also identifies multiple solutions for improving opportunities for Blacks in our state.
