Building Equity and Inclusion With Data
Today, more than ever, school teachers and students need our help.
Public schools are underfunded. Public school teachers are underpaid and overworked, and yet, they still keep on.
Most teachers need to pay for their classroom materials, which are not always cheap. And that’s exactly why working towards equity in schools and donating to nonprofits that can help public school teachers is essential.
Someone who understands this struggle and wants to help is today’s guest on the podcast, Alix Guerrier.
In this week’s episode of Data Unlocked, Jason sits down with Alix, the CEO of DonorsChoose.
Alix started his career as a teacher. But, he wanted to do more for the world, and to him, working alongside nonprofits was the way to do that.
That decision led him to becoming involved in many NGOs that work to support children and their families, such as Kinspire, Financepeer, and now DonorsChoose.
DonorsChoose is the number one nonprofit education funding site for public school teachers in the US. It helps educators by supporting their classrooms and donating all sorts of school materials.
In this episode, Alix discusses the importance of data driven equity, how DonorsChoose works, measuring equity, and more.
