Standards of Equity and Excellence: A Deeper Dive Into Subgroup Performance Webinar/Event

October 30, 2019

As a follow up to the National Urban League’s report Standards of Equity and Excellence: A Lens on ESSA State Plans, we are hosting a webinar alongside our partners at the Alliance for Excellent Education to discuss an important part of state accountability systems: Subgroup Performance. Subgroup Performance is how well particular groups, divided by characteristics (gender, race/ethnicity, language status, socioeconomic status, etc.) perform in particular measurable areas including language arts, math, and many others. We invite you to join us for a brief discussion on what we are seeing in the field and how we can continue to hold states accountable as we move forward.

Why Now? Why Us? The Case for an Inclusive Vision of 21st Century Learning Webinar/Event

October 11, 2019

This webinar addressed how students with disabilities are and are not being prepared for the realities of today and the challenges, opportunities, and possibilities of tomorrow. The impact of the changes we see aren’t discriminating between students with and without disabilities--they impact everybody equally. It’s time that our practices and policies provide all students access to key 21st century skills and dispositions like critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, self-advocacy, growth mindsets, and self-determination. Panelists described the urgency behind including students with disabilities in the vision of 21st century learning and what each of us—policy makers, practitioners, families, communities, and students—can do to make this a reality.
