What’s All This Talk About “Equity”? Geoff Canada Will Tell You.

After PolicyLink released its paper, America’s Tomorrow: Equity is the Superior Growth Model, lots of leaders, visionaries, thinkers, and doers have been weighing in to say why they think it’s true.

Geoffrey Canada, CEO of the Harlem Children’s Zone, writes the following:

“Education is the surest way out of poverty, so it is incumbent on all of us to make sure the opportunity to get a great education is truly available to all American children. America’s Tomorrow outlines several smart, do-able strategies where education can improve the outlook for poor children as well as the country’s workforce.”
