Detroit Future Schools Rebrands As People in Education


Detroit Future Schools is excited to announce our rebrand as “People in Education.”  Our rebrand includes a new brand identity, designed by The Work Dept!

People in Education’s mission is to humanize schooling by facilitating space for connection, curiosity and reflection. We do this through three core programs:

  • We bring media artists-in-residence into Detroit public schools to facilitate student-led community investigations, which culminate in Major Media Projects.
  • We offer a yearlong teacher fellowship program called the Rida Institute through which teachers gain the skills to nurture authentic youth voice and leadership in their classrooms.
  • Additionally, we work with a team of youth researchers who engage in participatory action research methods to explore our mission of humanizing schooling.
