What does the saying, “Eating the elephant one bite at a time,” have to do with improving educational equity? Things that appear to be overwhelming or seemingly impossible, like addressing the myriad of inequities in K-12 education, can be accomplished by taking on a little at a time. So, how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. How do we improve educational equity? Take on one goal at a time.

In this recorded edWebinar, Lexia’s Dr. Liz Brooke and Dr. Suzanne Carreker talk about the steps to improve educational equity and will highlight:

  • The difference between an achievement gap and an opportunity gap
  • How the pandemic is widening equity gaps
  • The implications of a new equity-focused U.S. Secretary of Education
  • What leaders can do to start leading with an equity agenda

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to preK-12 teachers and school and district leaders.
