Measuring Progress toward Equity in Science and Mathematics Education.
Kahle, Jane Butler
NISE Brief, v2 n3 Aug 1998
This brief makes the case for reform that addresses multiple parts of an educational system, and increases the access, retention, and achievement of students from all subgroups in high quality science and mathematics education programs. It is recommended that those who evaluate these programs develop guideposts comprised of an equity metric, a way to measure progress toward equity. A chart of research-validated indicators of equity and an initial equity plan for a central city school corporation are presented. (DDR)
