Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) in Maryland serve students from more than 164 countries speaking 134 languages. For almost a decade, students, teachers, and staff have participated in dialogues to help find ways to address racial barriers to student achievement. With the help of a grant through Everyday Democracy's Communities Creating Racial Equity initiative, the MCPS Study Circles Program has brought more teachers and staff to the table, which has led to more concrete changes within the school system.
