Here at Nellie Mae, we are committed to equitable public education and teaching the truth, and those values are under attack from special interests who do not actually care about our students. We are taking a stand in support of education alongside our partners in this week’s Sunday edition of the Boston Globe. Our open letter urges New England public schools to teach the truth and continue to make our schools models of equity, inclusion, and justice.
It has become apparent that these fights fueled by conservative voices are not going away. At Nellie Mae, we will continue to unapologetically champion racial equity and quality public education for all students across New England. We hope to have your continued support in the weeks, months, and years ahead during this effort.
For a closer look at our letter and video, supported by and shaped with many of our partners across communities, see below. If you are moved by what you see, please join us on this journey and let other supporters know.
In partnership and community,
Dr. Gislaine N. Ngounou
Interim President & CEO — Nellie Mae Education Foundation
