Title:Educational equity profiles: Practical leadership tools for equitable and excellent schools
Short Description:This paper proposes a prototype model for an educational equity profile, a tool for school leaders and other educators to help them understand and address the systemic inequities in their organizations and practices that lead to differential levels of student achievement distributed along race and social class lines.
Annotation:This paper proposes a prototype model for an educational equity profile, a tool for school leaders and other educators to help them understand and address the systemic inequities in their organizations and practices that lead to differential levels of student achievement distributed along race and social class lines. The tool is presented as a descendent of an important history of school equity audits and as a focused instrument that has the potential to be highly useful in the U.S. educational climate of high stakes accountability. The authors have identified a dozen key indicators grouped into three categories—teacher quality equity, programmatic equity, and achievement equity—that, together, can portray an initial profile of the state of systemic equity (or inequity) within a school or district.
