How can we move toward real educational equity? How do we define what that means? What does social and emotional learning have to do with it? And why are some advocates cautious of the push for SEL?
Join us for this exciting and provocative thought leader session featuring the Forum for Youth Investment’s Karen Pittman and the National Urban League’s Hal Smith as they tackle these questions and more. The Forum is committed to increasing access to high-quality, equitable learning environments, and is working closely with the National Urban League to move these ideas forward and develop a more interconnected and actionable definition of educational equity.
This call will highlight 12 equity indicators that were used to evaluate state-level education plans, highlighted in the recent National Urban League report titled “Standards of Equity & Excellence: A Lens on ESSA State Plans.” This conversation will help hone your understanding of educational equity and excellence, by sharing data to sharpen your understanding of inequities, and profiling some examples of how these inequities can be addressed. Learn more about how we can work together to expand the definition of where and when learning happens, and how to effectively develop and apply an equity lens in your work.
