The Shana Poole-Jones
Keep Pushing Award
While so many efforts in education are, rightly, centered on teaching and learning, these goals cannot be achieved when kids are underfed, unhoused, or at a disadvantage simply because of the color of their skin. These awards recognize persistent and creative ways to level the playing field by ensuring that basic needs are met while our schools work to identify and eradicate bias at the system level.
