The truth is children should all be receiving the same quality of education. Unfortunatley, that is not the case for many children who are the lower end of the socioeconomic scale. This website is to inform you of the causes of educational disparities. The history may be disheartening, but we must face the rality if we are to make a change.
Education equity advocates and researchers are generally agreed on what those root causes are. Black and brown students experience differences in resources and opportunities, including access to high-quality preschool, well-funded schools, advanced coursework and college-going supports. They can also experience lower expectations from educators in school and are more often punished for the same behaviors that are ignored in white students. These differences in opportunity lead to differences in student success.
