Education Resource Equity in 2020-21

Putting Our Money Where Our Values Are

As America grapples with an ongoing pandemic, an economic recession, and renewed national recognition of systemic racism, our nation’s students, families, and educators are at the center. Fueled by structural inequality and systemic racism, for too long our country has failed to provide students with higher needs and students of color with school experiences that help them achieve their biggest dreams. The COVID-19 pandemic has made these inequities more visible and far worse. Schools, districts, communities, and education advocates must work together to navigate these new challenges, while also simultaneously confronting longstanding injustices, by directing the right combination of resources to the students who need them most.

From Crisis to Change

This pre-populated PowerPoint uses data to paint a picture of how students of color and students with higher needs are experiencing the COVID pandemic and the types of challenges they’re facing. Leaders and advocates can customize the slides to show what local communities can do about it.
