Community Equity work

Kevin has a passion for improving school equity. He helped form the Community-Based School Equity Initiative in Duluth, Minnesota. The grassroots group of parents, staff and community members partnered with multiracial equity groups to force the return of over $1.5 million which was being diverted from higher-need schools in order to lower class size in the wealthier schools in the District.  The work drew the attention of the Media Policy Center which featured the effort in a PBS special, Our Kids: Narrowing the Opportunity Gap.
