Equal Opportunity Schools: Celebrating Marva Collins

Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society. Equal Opportunity Schools celebrates women of color, like Marva Collins, an American educator, Legendary Women of the World (1982), and founder of Westside Preparatory School. In 1975, frustrated with the public school system that was failing inner-city students, Collins established her own rigorous system that emphasized history, literature, and language studies through asking and answering questions to stimulate critical thinking. In 2004, Collins received the National Humanity Medal.

Join us in honoring Marva Collins by leaving a tribute on our social media channels @EqualOppSchools.
