General Equity Practices
Positive outcomes in student learning are the utmost priority of any educational system. However, due to many precedents both historic and lasting, our educational systems host inherent barriers to this outcome for many students. Students of color, students from low income families, students who are differently-abled, and other marginalized or under-resourced groups may face discrimination or lack of specific consideration and as a result, educational outcomes may suffer.
The purpose of General Equity Practices and its related resources is to empower staff, administration, and the larger school community to seek out these barriers and act to mitigate or dismantle them. With greater observation and intentionality, the educational system can begin to function more equitably for the benefit of the entire school community.
