Join us for an important discussion about Equity and Opportunity for Every Student
All students deserve a high-quality education. Unfortunately, inequities exist in students’ access to good teaching, proper supports that foster student growth and adequate needs-based funding.
This one-day event will provide stakeholders a forum to examine ways to positively impact educational outcomes for every student.
