This is a recording of a past webinar.

Equity in education has never been more important. We live in an increasingly unequal, fractured society and schools, as microcosms of that society, are increasingly unequal, fractured institutions. Schools cannot solve all of society’s ills, of course, but they can do more to ensure a child’s birth is not also their destiny. 

Currently, disadvantaged children – whether that be those living in poverty, those from underrepresented cultures, ethnicities and backgrounds, those with transient lives, or those with special educational needs and disabilities – start school behind their peers and schools fail to close the gap. In fact, that gap widens as children travel through the education system, in part because knowledge begets knowledge: those children who start out behind, find it harder than their peers to access the school curriculum and achieve, and thus they fall further and further behind. 

This 45-minute webinar by education author, journalist and advisor Matt Bromley, we will explore ways of removing the barriers some students face in order to provide a more equitable education to all. This webinar will provide practical strategies to help school leaders and teachers include the excluded and mitigate some of the effects of an unequal, fractured society.

What you’ll learn

  • Why are some students not included in the curriculum?
