Ensuring Educational Equity Through Accountable Leadership
Ensuring equitable access for all students is a persistent challenge in the education system. The Southeast Comprehensive Center (SECC) hosted an Equity Summit Nov. 29-Nov. 30 in Jackson, Mississippi, with the theme “Accountable Leadership: Opportunities for Equitable Systems.” Participants examined data on equity gaps in specific geographic areas and the role of education systems and leaders to create more equitable opportunities and outcomes. They also developed equity plans related to the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) to implement in their states after the summit.
