Abstract: For my honors project, I wish to touch upon a topic that I have begun to learn about within the education field. Contributions within our field are very broad and diverse. In schools, there are only certain names heard and discussed when educating students. As long as I can remember, most of these famous names belong to white people that have been deemed “very important” people that contributed to our progression and lives as we know them today. However, contributions within the education system do not stop and only come from white men as we have been taught. Many people, who come from different ethnicities and backgrounds, have made groundbreaking discoveries that also contribute to our society and lives. I wish to dig deeper into the education system and the contributions that helped us all get to where we are today. I wish to recognize and give credit to some unspoken names that have been overlooked in the field so that I may continue to give them credit in my future as an educator.
