Increasing Equity & Empowering Change
All students have been, and continue to be, impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, students who were already experiencing inequities are feeling the effects even more. As we look ahead to a new school year, there is an opportunity to address inequities—both longstanding and new. Now is the time to look deeply at the areas in which we successfully support all students as well as the policies and practices that widen equity gaps rather than reduce them.
Data play a critical role in advancing this work and ensuring that equity gaps are truly closing as intended, from identifying disparities in growth and achievement to understanding disproportionality in behavior incidents and responses. In this playbook, experts and practitioners deeply involved in creating and promoting equitable practices, policies, and opportunities offer research and insights on these issues.
