What We Do

We are a national public fund that fuels racial & education justice movements and promotes equity & opportunity in public education.

For thirty years, Schott has advanced the struggle for equity and justice in public education with research, convenings, and inclusive communications strategies. We lift up the voices of those most impacted — and inject new paradigms that push out-of-the-box thinking — to shift the narrative toward transformative solutions that give all children a fair and equitable opportunity to learn.​
