Marzano Research is a company of inclusion. We stand firmly in support of our Black colleagues, partners, and the entire Black community. We stand against inequality, racism, and discrimination of all kinds.
Recent protests have finally brought issues of systemic racism and violence against Black people to the front of conversations at the national (even global) level, as well as in all of our local communities. Unfortunately, these systemic issues are not new. They pervade our policing, housing, financial, employment, social—and yes, educational—systems. They have existed throughout our country’s history, and we must work together to end systemic oppression.
There is no quick fix for the enormity and long history of these issues. However, we believe education can be a unique key to dismantling systems of oppression.
That is why we commit to taking action in order to:
- Educate ourselves to be and create allies for racial equity and social justice.
- Bring any needed changes to our organization.
- Be a strong and committed partner to educators and education systems as they engage in work for racial equity and social justice.
Every single student and every family have the right to a high-quality education. An education that is free from violence and discrimination. An education that prepares them to soar—to see there are no barriers to them for success in school, work, and life. As a team, we commit to working to eliminate racism, discrimination, and inequality to ensure this right.
We will keep you informed as we learn how to make these changes real and bring new voices to the forefront of education.
