This conversation started around a lunch table in Austin, TX at an event to rethink education, and Juliet introduced me to her work at Bellwether and the idea of Assembly. I love Ed policy and ecosystem thinking, so was naturally drawn to her ideas and work but I had concerns that she patiently let me wonder about aloud.
Juliet Squire is a senior partner in the Policy and Evaluation practice area at Bellwether where she has provided policy analysis and advising support to school operators and support organizations, foundations, advocacy groups, and think tanks. Before joining Bellwether, Juliet worked at the New Jersey Department of Education, where she oversaw the state’s Race to the Top program and developed strategies for advancing technology-driven innovation.

Chris “Citizen” Stewart is an education activist, writer, speaker, podcaster, and influencer focusing on elevating the policies and practices that show the most promise for ensuring children thrive. He has had the privilege to be the Chief Influencer at brightbeam, a digital advocacy team that amplifies grassroots voices through Ed Post and other digital platforms.
He was the founding executive of the African American Leadership Forum, an intergenerational agenda-setting network of Black leaders across several states, which also connected me with accomplished mentors and advisors. Likewise, he has been a Pahara Fellow with the Aspen Institute and was the founder of the Wayfinder Foundation.
I heard Chris speak for the first time in 2020, follow the 8 Black Hands podcast regularly, and love the way he consistently introduces himself as a father who lives and breathes education policy. Today’s conversation stems from Chris’ blog Neither political party has an 'education' message worth hearing.
