Event description

Description

The Joint Special Populations Advisory Committee (JSPAC) and the Statewide Collaborative for Special Populations calls all educators to EQUITY ACTION! There have been dramatic improvements in California education, with equity at the heart of these efforts. High School graduation rates in 2017 for Black/African Americans and Hispanics/Latinos reached a record high and up by 12% from 2010, as an educational community, we realize that the traditional “one-size-fits-all,” time-based, curriculum delivery system does not work for all students. Unfortunately, the students who have been most affected by the traditional system are students of color, special populations, and non-traditional groups, all of which have been labeled as “historically underserved.” The students who have benefited the most are mainly those students who qualify as “middle” and “upper” economic classes, demographically white, and for the last twenty years, predominantly male. Across the country, educators and policymakers are coming to the same conclusion: the structure of the traditional system is a barrier to equity.

Join us for our (5) webinar series "Call to Equity Action", as your institution begins planning your 2020-21 Equity Framework, charting the next phase of equity efforts.
