Quality Education as a Constitutional Right: Creating a Grassroots Movement to Transform Public Schools

edited by Theresa Perry, Robert Moses, Joan T. Wynne, Ernesto Cortés Jr. and Lisa Delpit

In 2005, famed civil rights leader and education activist Robert Moses invited one hundred prominent African American and Latino intellectuals and activists to meet to discuss a proposal for a campaign to guarantee a quality education for all children as a constitutional right—a movement that would “transform current approaches to educational inequity, all of which have failed miserably to yield results for our children.” The response was passionate, and the meeting launched a movement.

This book—emerging directly from that effort—reports on what has happened since and calls for a new scale of organizing, legal initiatives, and public definitions of what a quality education is.
