2018 teacher action group (TAG) inquiry to action groups (ItAGs)
TAG is excited to present 2018’s Inquiry to Action Groups. ItAGs bring together educators, parents, students, and community members to focus on topics related to social justice in education, and to take action connected to what they learned. ItAGs create a space for us to explore, imagine, and work towards creating the schools our students deserve.
Join us at our ItAG Launch

This ItAG seeks to reexamine financial literacy programs found in many in school and community programs. Recognizing the racial wealth gap in the US, we seek to support youth in understanding the historical and systemic context that created and maintains this vast inequity and poverty. Our action will be to develop curriculum and school/community partnerships that provide basic financial literacy skills, and at the same time, challenge educators and youth to consider individual, community, and public policy solutions to help build generational wealth in marginalized communities, and to take active, collective steps to close the racial wealth gap.
Facilitators: Samuel Reed, III U School Humanities Educator, TAG Member, Teacher Consultant Philadelphia Writing Project.
