Equity in Education
At Generation Ready, we believe that there can be no educational excellence without educational equity. Educators have a responsibility to adapt to the diversity of their community, not limited to the dominant mainstream culture. In order to ensure successful learning for all students, students must “see themselves” in their curriculum and instructional materials. They must have access, support and resources to achieve success in school and become productive citizens. Excellence is evidenced by conditional practices that are associated with learning for all students. Equity exists when systematic educational differences do not exist based upon race, ethnicity, gender, economic status, and other cultural characteristics.
Our extensive work in equity consulting has yielded transformative results in the way of increased graduation rates, reduced discipline incidence rates, improved attendance and academic achievement among students of color.
