The history of ONE by ONE

In 2012, people all across Jacksonville began to come together to talk about an issue that affects every citizen in our city: education.

Jacksonville was at a crossroads. Surveys showed that residents felt education is the most important issue facing Duval County, yet we faced ever-greater challenges to public schools. The residents of Jacksonville had to get involved and speak up to create a common vision for education in our city.

ONE by ONE started with an innovative art exhibit that lifted the faces and voices of 20 current or former students in Duval County Public Schools who faced great obstacles to getting their education.

The exhibit sparked the interest of more than 1,600 people who participated in 169 small-group conversations, identifying what issues matter the most in our public schools and posting the results of the conversations online.

Read a full report of who participated in the ONE by ONE conversations, and what they said.

Then, through delegates nominated from every part of the city, the people of Duval County spoke with ONE voice about their priorities for public education on Jan. 5, 2013.

Working together, the delegates voted on the top four priorities that emerged from the conversation data:

  • Educate the whole child.
  • High quality teachers and leaders.
  • Policy and political reform.
  • Family and caregiver involvement.

The delegates took these themes and turned them into a Community Agreement. You can see who signed the Community Agreement here and sign it yourself.

Take a look back at the previous conventions and learn how delegates plan to advance the community priorities.
