Equity and equal opportunities in US education
Jan 21, 2021

Equal access to education was an essential facet of the civil rights movement of the 1960s, and has since come to be enshrined in law internationally. However, that is not the whole story of equality in education.

Jen Neitzel, executive director of the Educational Equity Institute, is committed to improving educational experiences for students and practice for teachers, through tackling injustices built into the systems and architecture of state education. We spoke in early December 2020 about her work and her hopes for building a more just and equal education system.

Her book, Achieving Equity and Justice in Education through the Work of Systems Change,  available through Rowman & Littlefield publishers.
