The 66th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision provides a moment to pause and consider how much work is still needed to provide equitable educational opportunities to every student. School closures and disruption of services due to COVID-19 have exposed a huge number of equity concerns, with black and brown students and their families disproportionality affected by this crisis.

The authors, members of the COVID-19 Education Coalition, assert the need to once again pursue policy changes that can disrupt systemic inequities in education. They present a powerful call-to-action; challenging all educators, district and school leaders, and state policymakers to sign a pledge to ask hard questions and tackle uncomfortable truths so that we can truly provide ALL students with a quality education.
