State Superintendent Candidate Forum: What's at Stake for Black and Brown Communities?

As our nation grapples with the chaos of a pandemic, social/political unrest and economic instability, Black and Brown children are seemingly being left behind in the narrative. Before COVID-19, multiple studies demonstrated that Wisconsin is the worst place to raise a Black or Brown child, and the racial academic achievement disparities are among the worst in the country. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, these gaps have only widened and are threatening to drastically change the quality of life for the next generation of children on economic, social and health levels, among others.

Join the discussion as we learn how the State Superintendent candidates intend to address these issues for Black and Brown children across the state in both urban and rural areas.
