As head of the nation's largest teacher's union, Becky Pringle understands the need to have courageous conversations on equity, inclusion and race. "We are leading a movement to reclaim public education as a common good as a foundation of this democracy and investing in it in a way that reflects that," she says. "We can't stop there, though, we have to transform it into something it was never designed to be, a racially and socially just and equitable system that prepares every student everyone to succeed in a diverse and interdependent world."
