At the Edtech Equity Project, we believe in a world that boldly prioritizes racial equity. Black and Brown students make up over half of all students in American K-12 public schools, a statistic that is much higher in the country’s high-poverty schools and largest school districts.
We have also seen the way bias in algorithmic systems has led to racial discrimination in the criminal justice system, job recruitment, healthcare, loan decisions, and more.
Let’s get ahead of this in education.
The edtech industry needs leaders who commit to racial equity in the design and development of technologies for schools. Schools must champion the needs of their Black and Brown students and hold edtech companies accountable for their impact on all students, prior to purchase. We provide free tools to help edtech companies and schools get started.
