We reach millions of people every year through our digital platforms—including our flagship platform, Education Post—where we help strong voices tell powerful stories that unite and move their communities to action.
Seeking Common Ground
In October 2021, we launched a virtual town hall series to foster dialogue that points the way to a sensible, common-ground agenda that everyone can fight for, today. Our series of virtual panels brought together key national and grassroots leaders to tackle the critical issues stopping our kids from reaching their full potential.
Why Proficiency Matters
Brightbeam has partnered with ExcelinEd to create a data tool exposing the tremendous gaps in proficiency levels between Black, Latino and Native American students and their white peers. After generations of economic and social policy that has discriminated against people of color, access to an education that meets the needs of these students is still largely unequal. Explore the gaps in your state and city.
The Secret Shame
Our report, “The Secret Shame: How America’s Most Progressive Cities Betray Their Commitment to Educational Opportunity for All,” offers a shocking comparison of racial gaps in educational outcomes between progressive and conservative cities. We are urging progressive leaders to recognize appalling disparities and prioritize closing achievement gaps.
