Over 850,000 low-income and students of color have not been placed in advanced level courses across U.S. high schools.1
That’s approximately 1,100 high schools worth of students!2
For various reasons, Black, Brown and underprivileged students are often times overlooked and aren’t seated in AP, IB, or AICE classes. We at Equal Opportunity Schools have proprietary tools and resources that can help your school district address and hopefully end this disparity. We host regular Education Equity Regional Convenings (virtually) to inform superintendents, principals, and school and district leaders about our Action For Equity partnership program.
Our Fall 2021 Education Equity Regional Convening schedule will be released in the upcoming weeks. In the meantime, if you are interested in learning more about equity and how to support low-income and students of color in their access and opportunity to rigorous courses, please contact us directly to schedule a personalized Zoom call with you and your team.
To date, we’ve helped 700 schools in 220+ districts across 35 states increase equitable access to advanced level academic courses. We hope you’ll partner with us in the pursuit of education equity for underserved students. Register today!
