CALL TO ACTION

Equity is front and center in revised standards

By Frederick Brown and Tracy Crow
June 2021
At Learning Forward, we believe that all educators and education sectors must commit to doing their part to build equity and dismantle racism, classism, homophobia, misogyny, and other forms of prejudice. As an organization focused on professional learning as a key lever for school improvement, we have a clear role to play in building educators’ capacity to recognize and realize the imperative of equity. Professional learning can equip educators with knowledge and strategies to engage in self-examination, recognize and eliminate bias in instructional practices and interactions, implement rigorous and culturally relevant instructional materials for all students, and differentiate instruction to ensure every student’s success. Through these and other pathways, professional learning can ensure high-quality teaching for every student, thereby eliminating gaps in access and opportunity.
