Educational Equity: Challenges for Educator Effectiveness
Best, Jane; Winslow, Emily
McREL International
With increasingly diverse student populations, educational equity is a bigger challenge than ever for public schools across the United States. While federal government, states, and school districts work to identify and address the root causes of equity gaps, efforts are often hampered by a limited body of research-based strategies and approaches that work best. This brief provides an overview for policymakers on addressing equity gaps for vulnerable student populations through educator effectiveness. Specifically, the authors examine three components: (1) recruiting and distributing effective educators; (2) supporting and retaining teachers through targeted professional development; and (3) improving educator evaluation practices to address equity gaps for vulnerable student populations. Included are essential questions to consider and policy recommendations.
