Dr. John Jackson

Education Advocate

A Harvard Law alum and former national education director at the NAACP, Jackson is president of the Schott Foundation for Public Education. As a member of President Obama’s Education Policy Transition Work Group, Jackson had the opportunity to bend the president’s ear on national education policy, with a group-wide focus on early-childhood education and recruiting new teachers, as Obama transitioned into office in 2009.

Jackson speaks out on education issues nationwide and leads the National Opportunity to Learn Campaign, an organization that “has drawn attention to the many ways in which students, especially poor and minority, are denied basic learning opportunities,” Noguera said in an email. “He also has been a leader in drawing attention to the plight of black male students in American schools, who are notoriously underserved.”
