Centering well-being on the road to educational equity
What does it take to address educational disparities? For Equal Opportunity Schools (EOS), a Seattle-based nonprofit that works with school districts across the country to put equity into action and support student well-being and belonging, it starts with finding “missing” students–those who are ready and willing, but not given access to challenging classes. “We help schools recruit and support students of color and low-income students–those furthest from educational justice–into AP, IB, Cambridge, dual enrollment and other advanced courses,” said Kia Franklin, chief program officer at EOS.
