In 2011, SERC released an important document to encourage Connecticut educators, policy makers, and other stakeholders concerned about educational equity to focus specifically on race. In “Equity in Education: A Transformational Approach,” we outlined five critical elements to addressing systemic racial inequity: Leadership, Professional Capacity, School Climate, School-Family-Community Partnerships, and Teaching & Learning. This new report, the first follow-up to our 2011 document, focuses specifically on the element of Teaching & Learning.
As we explain in the Teaching & Learning report, “SERC believes that the classroom is the most fundamental place where equity in education does or does not happen. It is in the classroom where teaching practices play a critical role in meeting the needs of a diverse student population.” Download the full report to learn more.
