Recently, John H. Jackson, Ed.M.’98, Ed.D.’01, president and CEO of the Schott Foundation for Public Education, presented the opening keynote for the 10th Annual Alumni of Color Conference (AOCC) at the Ed School. In his address, Jackson touched on the AOCC’s theme of disrupting the discourse, suggesting that killing off “bad models” in education is the way to make systemic changes.
In this edition of the Harvard EdCast, Jackson reflects on how we can close the opportunity gap in public schools across the country.
