Rebell, MIchael A. – Campaign for Educational Equity, Teachers College, Columbia University, 2015

Although children in low-income communities on average have greater health needs, they…

The research is conclusive: Providing a high-quality early childhood education is crucial if we are to reach our state and national goals of educational equity and excellence, preparing children for college and career.

Rebell, Michael A. – Campaign for Educational Equity, Teachers College, Columbia University, 2012
In absence of an existing framework to assess the state's compliance with the court order in "Campaign for Fiscal Equity (CFE) v. State of New York," which guarantees all students the right to an adequate education, the Campaign's first report creates an operational definition for sound basic education. Drawing on relevant state…

Rebell, Michael A. – Campaign for Educational Equity, Teachers College, Columbia University, 2011
Raising academic standards and eliminating achievement gaps between advantaged and disadvantaged students are America's prime national educational goals. Current federal and state policies, however, largely ignore the fact that the childhood poverty rate in the United States is 21%, the highest in the industrialized world, and that poverty…

Rothstein, Richard; Wilder, Tamara; Allgood, Whitney – Campaign for Educational Equity, Teachers College, Columbia University, 2011
The inability of the United States to narrow the achievement gap stems to a large extent from school reform initiatives that neglect the specific conditions in the lives of low-income students that contribute heavily to inadequate school performance. A new consensus is emerging that a more effective approach would be to prevent the achievement gap…

Belfield, Clive; Hollands, Fiona; Levin, Henry – Campaign for Educational Equity, Teachers College, Columbia University, 2011
Approximately half of all New York City public school students who live in families with incomes less than 185% of the federal poverty level (FPL) do not graduate from high school. These dropouts are much less likely to achieve economic self-sufficiency in adulthood. This creates both a fiscal and social burden. Rothstein, Wilder and Allgood…

Rebell, Michael A.; Wolff, Jessica R. – Campaign for Educational Equity, Teachers College, Columbia University, 2011

Basch, Charles E. – Campaign for Educational Equity, Teachers College, Columbia University, 2010

Health-related problems play a major role in limiting the motivation and…
