Statistics tell us that despite 61 years of integration and attention to equity, not much has changed in many parts of the United States. Students in high-poverty schools lack the supports needed to become college ready, and school districts that serve the highest percentages of low-income students and students of color receive significantly less in local and state funding than districts that serve predominantly white and affluent students. Concerns about equity also extend to the gender gap and equitable services for gifted students.
In this month’s issue brief, we explore resources and recommendations related to issues of equity in education.
How can parents and educators advocate for more equitable outcomes for students? Which leverage points will allow us to see the greatest results with regard to equity issues? What resources do you recommend on this topic? Please respond to our call for commentary. We’d love to hear from you!
