Infusing Equity across School Reform Initiatives.
Equity Issues, v6 n1 Fall 1999
Legislation and educational initiatives aimed at reforming Ohio's career-technical education system include establishing higher academic expectations for all students, blending academic and technical content, preparing students for postsecondary education and careers, and including all students. This paper looks at how educators, administrators, and service providers can accomplish the following equity-related items: (1) infuse equity while implementing the initiatives and legislation; (2) collaborate effectively with school staff and community service providers to enhance equity; (3) access financial resources that are available to address equity issues; and (4) assess results regarding equity. Two charts illustrate equity considerations within current federal legislation and equity considerations within Ohio career-technical education initiatives. Eight questions to consider in assessing equity issues when implementing reform initiatives are included. (KC)
