A View from Academia: Creative Strategies for New Coalitions
Wong, Kenneth
Voices in Urban Education, n45 2017
The federal government has a unique responsibility to address educational inequality and educational quality for all children. Regardless of how the new US Secretary of Education is going to redefine or reframe the federal education agenda, the author thinks all the stakeholders need to continue to focus on their work so that the federal government under the new leadership will continue to pay attention to schooling inequality, resource disparity, and teacher quality in high-needs communities. The author discusses rethinking relationships and strategies, such as the relationship between charter schools and traditional public schools and identifying the key stakeholders at the state level. He ends the article with a discussion of the strength of the "children's agenda." He is hopeful it will remain vibrant, with US Senate races bringing in new women Senators and supportive governors and legislative leaders who have developed family and children's cabinets at the state level.
