Equity in Education

[Ideal for Special Educators, General Educators, Related Service Providers]

 

Fair and inclusive education is of the utmost importance to our diverse democracy. The history of the United States illustrates that minority groups have had varying degrees of access to education.  Equity in education directly impacts the future of our nation.  As we begin to promote equity in education, we are consciously promoting better professional opportunities for all students including those from historically marginalized groups.  This course is designed to explore the historical events that have affected equity in education.  The course will also support contemporary educators in fostering more equitable practices in the classroom.  

 

Upon course completion, participants will be able to: 

  • identify issues that detract from equitable access to learning

  • examine historical trends in denial of access to education for marginalized groups 

  • identify factors that lead to differential educational outcomes for groups in contemporary schools

  • differentiate between the Opportunity Gap and the Achievement Gap

  • equip students to support equitable practices. 

*Presentations and workshops can be customized to meet your team’s specific needs.  Consultation and webinars also available.  Contact Dr. Latimer-Hearn for more information or to schedule a presentation.
