Overview

Equity 101- The Equity Framework: Book 1 by Curtis W. Linton

Equity is key to eliminating achievement gaps

This first volume of a four-book series outlines a simple, yet powerful approach to creating the expectations, rigor, relevancy, and relationships necessary for any child to succeed. Equity 101 describes school systems that have changed their climate, culture, and practices to foster high levels of achievement. Best-selling author Curtis Linton introduces the three essential characteristics of equity:

  • Clear expectations for closing the achievement gap
  • Commitment to rigorous curriculum
  • Relationships that promote learning

Readers will have access to online videos that are keyed to central concepts of the series.
