The education system encompasses more than just what happens in the classroom. Beyond students, parents and teachers, communities and social groups play an important role in a student’s success.
As debates over resources define what happens in schools, how can communities come together to best serve all students throughout the educational ecosystem? And how can governments provide a quality education to students in every ZIP code? From providing adequate meals, to offering after-school activities, to a well-rounded curriculum, The Atlantic gathered educators, activists and policymakers to look at ways to create the building blocks of a quality education.
