During this live radio broadcast Dr. Sonya Whitaker converses with Dr. Nicholas Wahl, Regional Director, Partnership Development for Equal Opportunity Schools. This organization recognizes the fact that at least three-quarters of a million incoming junior and sensors are ready to be enrolled in rigorous academic programs, but do not have equitable access to these courses. These students are disproportionately students of color and low-income students. Equal Opportunity Schools helps to identify and remove barriers to equitable access.
During this broadcast Dr. Wahl will provide information specific to his background as well as what his organization does to address your district’s equity initiatives relevant to ensuring that all students obtain access to intellectually stimulating academic experiences.

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) today announced $6.3 million in grants to four organizations working directly with educators, schools, and districts to design and replicate practices that promote and enable equity, through a focus on improving student well-being and equipping educators with the resources to assess student progress.
Seattle-based nonprofit Equal Opportunity Schools (EOS), whose mission is to ensure that students of color and low-income students have equitable access to advanced high school academic programs, will receive $1.5 million to scale its Action For Equity Toolkit and Framework, and to pilot real-time tools that help school districts determine their progress toward ensuring equitable access, opportunity, and participation in academically rigorous courses, and the development of anti-racist education environments.
