Equity Benchmarks for Vermont.
Wallace, Joy, Ed.
Unless communities create equitable learning environments, many students will be excluded from learning and will not be fully prepared for the workforce of the future. The Vermont Institute for Science, Math and Technology has developed benchmarks to assure educational equity. Benchmarks are listed for the following areas: (1) school and classroom climate; (2) curriculum; (3) assessment; (4) professional development; (5) management and governance; (6) community outreach; and (7) access to technology. Following the benchmarks listed for each area, a checklist is presented to help educators assess existing educational equity in their own communities. The "Equity Reality Check" asks questions about the same areas. A list of equity resources organizations in Vermont is included. (SLD)
