Chris Geary is an MPP1 at the Harvard Kennedy School. Chris was a public school teacher in Colorado and subsequently worked on Mike Johnston’s 2018 Colorado gubernatorial campaign.
Chris shares his experiences and perspectives on the charter school debate, systematic inequality and racism, and putting students first in education policy.
“Everyone always says the system is broken, but the system is actually doing exactly what it was designed to do: create enduring inequality. Don’t assume there’s a simple policy solution to centuries of racism in our educational system or that there’s going to be some little innovation you can tap into. But rather go connect with someone who’s been really negatively affected by systematic oppression and go learn from their perspective.”
