Community Schools and Equity: Our Framework

Community Schools and Equity: Our Framework 

January 28, 2015 3:00-4:00PM EST 


During this webinar, participants learned more about the national context of inequity in public education, including the major demographic shifts in public schools -- low-income students now comprise a majority of the nation's public classrooms -- and the current political debates surrounding educational equity. They also learned how the community school strategy presents a hopeful solution for closing the opportunity and achievement gaps.
