Angela Engel, with a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction and over 25 years of experience and influence in educational advocacy has championed children, innovation and equity in a growing climate of greed and insecurity.
Her heart for transformation and human potential had Angela launching her first non-profit for at risk youth in Denver Public Schools at just 19. Angela is also a Master Trainer and Facilitator, a published author and guest of dozens of radio and TV programs.
Her experience seeing grass-roots movements manifesting change has birthed many successful initiatives and articulated solutions to the most grievous injustices. Drawing from her breadth of experience, and knowledge of the limitations of conventional paradigms and systems, she is able to both challenge, teach and innovate to maximize the greatest catalyst for change in our communities – You.
Angela is the Co-Founder, and Executive Director of Uniting 4 Kids. She is the acclaimed Author of Seeds of Tomorrow: Solutions for Improving our Children’s Education and the collaborative book project Fixing Public Education.
In 2008 she served as the project Director for the Children’s Action Agenda, organizing children’s advocacy groups from around Colorado on a common legislative platform. Engel designed the “50 State Resolution” to end No Child Left Behind and authored legislation to reduce high-stakes testing, protect parental rights, and improve prevention and early intervention services for low-income children.
Angela has been challenging standardization and corporate deferred accountability since she administered the first CSAP test in Douglas County in 1997. She speaks directly on the campaign to defund neighborhood schools, the de-professionalization of teachers, and the unregulated distribution of student’s personal information. She combines both data and narratives to demonstrate the consequence of privatization on education, democracy, innovation and the well-being of children. Most importantly, she provides detailed strategies for communities to exercise power and catalyze resistance against the destructive forces that threaten the American values of freedom and equality and cut at the heart of a civil society.
