Equal Opportunity Schools today reveals a brand new logo and overall style that perfectly illustrates the nonprofit’s commitment to providing students from all ethnic and financial backgrounds equal access to rigorous courses.
The sleek new logo features the shadow of a gender-neutral child victoriously standing on a pile of books with their hand raised to the sky. The image radiates success and determination—characteristics that EOS works to implement in each student, school, and district with whom they work.
Yesterday, Vice President Kamala D. Harris swore in the twelfth United States Secretary of Education Dr. Miguel A. Cardona. We at Equal Opportunity Schools look forward to the approach that Dr. Cardona’s experience as a public school alumnus, parent, former educator, and school system leader will bring to our work in closing gaps for historically underserved students in advanced level classrooms across the U.S.
Equal Opportunity Schools (EOS) today announced its free Virtual Symposium, Race, Equity & The Future of School, scheduled for March 1-31, 2021.
