Equal opportunity for students

October 5, 2015 at 12:42 pm Leave a comment

The National Education Policy Center web sites includes a series of policy brief documents, and the latest release is by Jennifer King Rice titled Investing in Equal Opportunity: What would it take to Build the Balance Wheel?

Selected from the press release: 

“The brief describes resources both within the traditional education sphere and reaching beyond it, expanding the role of education in addressing all students’ needs. Her recommendations for policymakers include:

  • Recognizing the broader goals of education such as civic responsibility, democratic values, economic self-sufficiency, and social and economic opportunity;
  • Ensuring that all schools have the fundamental resources necessary for student success, especially for those students with disadvantaged backgrounds;
  • Expanding the services and resources offered to schools in high-poverty neighborhoods, providing wrap-around services such as nutritional supports and health clinics; and
  • Promoting a policy context supportive of equal opportunity and sensitive to local circumstances.”
