Our collective future depends on an education system that eradicates inconsistent and inequitable learning opportunities. America’s history of oppression has created an educational environment that does not work for all students. This has led to a predictable and pervasive cycle of ineffective education, especially for historically marginalized students.
eXi believes that the system must be redesigned for all students and this can only be done at the intersection of equity and innovation.
