Tuesday Talk: Closing the Education Equity Gap
Discussions about education reform simultaneously blame the teachers and laud them as the most important factor in a student's success. While educators play a central role, students need a wide array of community support to ensure they’re learning — a circle that many students lack.
In tackling this education equity gap, we must address a variety of factors including foreclosure prevention, living wage jobs, access to affordable health care, increasing the number of teachers of color, and stronger parent/teacher partnerships.
Join us from 8-9:30 am for a discussion moderated by Mary Cathryn Ricker, teacher and SPFT president, on what we should expect of our teachers and how we can best partner with communities.
