Bringing Everyone to the Table to Eradicate School Discipline Disparities
Brown, Allison; Mediratta, Kavitha
Voices in Urban Education, n42 p7-13 2015
The Atlantic Philanthropies funded the work of the Positive and Safe Schools Advancing Greater Equity (PASSAGE) initiative, which is a unique approach to ending discipline disparities focused on partnerships between districts and community organizations. Open Society Foundations is considering funding similar work. For this interview, "Voices in Urban Education" editors asked Allison Brown (program officer at Open Society Foundations) and Kavitha Mediratta (chief strategy advisor for equity initiatives and human capital at The Atlantic Philanthropies) to discuss what brought them--and their foundations--to tackle the issue of school discipline disparities and what they have learned about challenges to and opportunities for reform.
