Equity priority

A new research project finds that the overwhelming majority of educators agree that equity in education for all children should be a national priority. Teachers and principals also agree (87%) that “many of their students face barriers to learning that come from outside the school environment.” While a greater percentage of educators in high-poverty schools (98%) report having students with barriers, two-thirds say the same in low-poverty schools.
