Leadership for Educational Equity (LEE) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit leadership development organization working to end the injustice of educational inequity by inspiring and supporting a diverse set of leaders with classroom experience to engage civically and politically. Accountability for Learning. by Douglas B. Reeves. Table of Contents. Chapter 7. Putting It All Together Standards, Assessment, and Accountability. Although the focus of this book is accountability, we cannot complete our consideration of the topic without a discussion of the context in which accountability typically occurs—academic standards and student assessments.

The school board contracted with Glenn Singleton, the book’s author, and the Pacific Educational Group (PEG) to provide professional development and consultation for the district’s efforts. Through its Framework for Systemic Equity/Anti-Racism Transformation, PEG helps school districts address racial educational disparities, become aware of.   I also see educational equity as giving students equal opportunities to succeed in education. A lot of learning goes on outside of the classroom, and students don’t have equal resources at home. One of the keys of achieving educational equity is ensuring these gaps in resources are, at least in part, covered up by resources provided by schools.

Equity and Accountability 9 components of the accountability section, focusing specifically on those related to equity issues. Areas of commonality were noted and categories emerged for each approach. In addition, unique approaches were identified. Summaries were created for each state across various categories.   A data-driven, student-centered framework for achieving educational equity requires that leaders identify achievement gaps, consider the learners, and pursue high standards for all. The goal then is to create educational equity by learning and applying the knowledge and resources needed for the unique needs of each child and setting a high bar.
