For A Roundtable Meeting Of The Equity Project
Type of SupportProject
For Each and Every Child (EEC) is a nascent initiative housed by the Chief Justice Earl Warren Institute on Law and Social Policy at the University of California, Berkeley; it seeks to implement the findings of the congressionally-chartered, national Commission on Equity and Excellence’s report--For Each and Every Child: A Strategy for Education Equity and Excellence--by: developing outreach and fostering engagement to expand consensus, establishing hubs for informing and supporting a movement, and consulting on policy engineering and technical assistance. EEC will convene a couple of day-long, invitation-only roundtables to identify in detail the implications of Deeper Learning initiatives from an equity perspective. The goals will be to establish a consensus view on whether and how Deeper Learning and equity concerns are interrelated or aligned and how Deeper Learning can be implemented in a way that supports the goals of the equity movement.
