There is a long history of imbalances found in the educational system of this country; remnants of past prejudice and institutionalized racism vibrate in communities of color. There has been evidence concluding that there is an educational gap between students, based on their race.

“The Educational Opportunity Monitoring Project” is a collection of research findings, conducted by the Stanford Center of Education Policy Analysis (Cepa).

“One potential explanation for racial achievement gaps is that they are largely due to socioeconomic disparities between white, black, and Hispanic families. Parents of black and Hispanic children typically have incomes and educational levels lower than those of parents of white children.

The Parents’ Revolution recognized this truth and dedicated many waking moments to changing it, for their children, their surrounding community and their future. This organization works with parents, “to create individual, local and systemic change with their choices and with their voices”. They played a major role in passing and implementing California’s landmark Parent Empowerment Act,” helping families in nine underperforming schools bring about major change through community organizing.

Her work has been seen in many different forms, Artis-Wright was director of Upward Bound programs, legislative consultant and advocate for child safety in the entertainment industry.

The former Upward Bound manager shared her feelings in a press release, she said: ‘I saw parents lobbying a powerful media conglomerate – and they listened!’

Artis-Wright continued, “I realized the unique power that happens when an adult stands up for their child…”

“I imagined how great it would be if I could get more parents to influence stakeholders in the same way that I witnessed and made a complete career change,” Artis-Wright said. .

Using her passion to guide her, Artis-Wright has held leadership positions in education-focused nonprofit organizations. Organizations such as Leadership for Educational Equity (LEE), the Teach for America’s Partner organization, and charter school trade associations have all benefited from Artis-Wright’s talents.

While lending its skills to LEE, Artis-Wright played an important role in recruiting former teachers and political leaders and giving them the opportunity to participate in school board elections.

Current advocacy events include a lawsuit against LAUSD. Shaw c. LAUSD was filed in 2019, the case described gaps in education, due to procedures performed during the first viral spread of COVID-19. “The district is letting students down by providing students with less instructional time compared to other large districts in California and reducing the hours teachers are required to work,” according to a report found in the LA Times.

The case was decided in October 2021. The court ruled in favor of LAUSD, stating that the issue of distance education challenges was moot, as educational practices returned to the classroom. The Parents’ Revolution seeks to challenge the decision and continues to expose inadequate educational practices that prevent children from having the best possible future.
