Course Description

This course explores the shift in education from equality, where all students are treated ‘equally’, to the more equitable model where each student gets ​what they need​. An inspiring look at real-world educators who are creating schools where all students are able to thrive is explored through the course text. In these schools, educators understand that equity is not about treating all children the same. They are deeply committed to ensuring that each student receives what he or she individually needs to develop their full potential and succeed. This text emphasizes the practices that are grounded in three important areas of research that are too often disregarded: (1) child development, (2) neuroscience, and (3) environmental influences on child development and learning. Ensuring that all students receive an education that cultivates their talents and potential is in all our common interest as a society.
