Diverse, Equitable and Inclusive K-12 Schools: A New Call for Philanthropic Support

By Susan Eaton and Suchi Saxena

This report makes the case for philanthropic investment in racially, culturally and socioeconomically diverse K-12 public schools. We offer an overview of work in this field, its evolution, its growing popularity, supportive research base and hopeful contemporary examples. We provide a variety of paths for funders to support this work in ways that align with common philanthropic strategies and priorities. This report was informed by interviews with educators and other practitioners working towards diverse, equitable and inclusive schools and  by numerous convenings and conferences, by research and by the authors' experience in this field. We wish to thank our project collaborators and sponsors, The Ford Foundation and the Einhorn Family Charitable Trust.
