Equality AND Equity: Leveling the Playing Field so Everyone Can Play
Presenter: Adam Bauserman, Senior Client Program Manager
Everyone agrees that making sure every kid gets to participate in their education is imperative, but for students who struggle, just giving them access to the same education isn’t enough. Many students need additional attention, instruction, or intervention so they CAN participate in their education. Both equality and equity must exist in the classroom for all students to succeed, but knowing the difference, understanding the objectives, and avoiding the missteps is complicated at best. In this session of Ask Dr. Behave, we’ll talk about identifying the need (equality vs. equity), strategies to fill the gap, and how to know if it’s working.
