Educational equity means that each child receives what he or she needs to develop to his or her full academic and social potential.
Working toward equity involves:
- 1. Ensuring equally high outcomes for all participants in our educational system;
- 2. Removing the predictability of success or failure that currently correlates with any social or cultural factor;
- 3. Interrupting inequitable practices, examining biases, and creating inclusive multicultural school environments for adults and children; and
- 4. Discovering and cultivating the unique gifts, talents, and interests that every human possesses.
Competency Systems ® support educational equity through it's a comprehensive suite of learning experiences aligned to the performance criteria, which are rigorous, common expectations for learning (knowledge, skills, and dispositions).
An innovative school implements all seven elements mentioned above while we offer the school systems a comprehensive next generation digital learning environment (NGDLE) and consultancy for developing policies and culture that support every student in developing essential knowledge, skills, and dispositions.
