Non-biased Inclusive Aspirational Inspirational
Equity in Education Commitment
For more than 40 years, Gallopade has made an organic and innate commitment to equity in education. Providing resources for a non-biased, inclusive, aspirational, and inspirational education (in school and out) has been a hallmark and cornerstone of our family-owned business from the beginning to the present. Gallopade has always focused on historical truth, honesty, clarity, and comprehensiveness by including all aspects of a subject so that students understand the actions, contributions, and perspectives of diverse people as part of the whole cloth of the historical narrative.
Our Products Do More Than Educate
They develop the competencies, confidence, and aspirations that equip and inspire students to become lifelong learners, independent thinkers, and architects of their future.
Our Opportunity to Make a Difference
Today, we are excited by the opportunity to bring even more equity and inclusiveness to education as our country rethinks answers to the question, “What is American history?” Gallopade is collaborating with diverse educators, organizations, and writers to share the histories, experiences, and perspectives of diverse, underserved, and disadvantaged groups of people so that the stories and perspectives that have been omitted from traditional accounts of history become an integral and integrated part of the American experience and history that all students study and learn. This history is not just the story of the past, but it is the foundation we build upon with the next generations of Americans.
We are committed to helping this and future generations develop the knowledge, skills, empathy, courage, grit, determination, and confidence that equips, motivates, and empowers them to make their community, state, country, and the world a land of opportunity, justice, safety, inclusivity, and true freedom for all.
