“We have a common goal. We’re working toward promoting equity at every level of P-12 public education and rather than operating in silos we want to work together.”
-Dr. Joseph Allen, Diversity and Inclusion Specialist at Mooresville Graded School District
In February, the RMK Equity in Education Summit was a dream for Kannapolis City Schools’ Director of Student Services and Secondary Education Jessica Grant.
This week that dream has become reality as educators from Rowan-Salisbury Schools, Mooresville Graded School District, Kannapolis City Schools and UNC Charlotte have come together to not only discuss equity in education, but to hopefully move closer to achieving it.
