#SheffMovement Design Challenge

The Sheff Movement, in collaboration with UCHI, UConn’s Thomas J. Dodd Research Center, Hartford Public Library, The Hartford Foundation, The Sillerman Center, Achieve Hartford, Hartford Parent University and CREC, hosted a Design Challenge to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Sheff v. O’Neill decision.The event aimed to promote meaningful public discourse and engagement that will ultimately strengthen Greater Hartford’s ongoing efforts to address racial and socioeconomic isolation and related inequities.

The Design Challenge brought together educators, researchers, students, parents, and other community members to work collaboratively to

  • Co-create a vision for achieving quality integrated education for all Hartford’s children;
  • Reinvigorate the court-mandated process of providing all Hartford’s children a quality integrated education;
  • Generate fresh new ideas, and outline strategies to meaningfully advance the goal of quality integrated education over the next three to five years.
