The organizations invited School Board Trustee Viola M. García and Superintendent of Schools LaTonya M. Goffney to speak on why equity in public education matters.

The Mexican American School Boards Association (MASBA) and the Texas Caucus of Black School Board Members (TCBSBM) hosted the Equity Symposium on February 27.

The event brought together public education leaders. Each one had one common focus — improving outcomes for all students.

The Equity Symposium also featured several other recognized speakers on equity, including Kimberly McLeod of the Harris County Department of Education, Jacinto Ramos Jr. of the Fort Worth ISD Board of Trustees, and Verjeana McCotter-Jacobs of the National School Board Association Council of Urban Boards of Education.
