What services does EdEquity Inc. provide?
In “EdEquity White Paper,” titled: “What is Really Educational Equity?” the company wrote:
“Data gives evidence that middle class euro‐centric ways of doing things in our schools is the way for student success. Which may cause conflicting struggles for students who can’t or don’t choose to engage school that way!
Broadening CRP to include experiences for students of color is a “How” that needs to be explored at all levels of the system. Just providing a book with “black or brown folks” in it is not a CRP! Teaching students how to understand a different perspective and how the experiences of the text may or may not align to your personal experiences is one way to deepen the thought processes of ALL students. Our white students need to know how different cultures may differ from their experiences. This analysis of students’ cultural differences can provide a better understanding of different perspectives; and will provide a catalyst for Americans to have healthy conversations regarding Race. If we continue to “hide” that there are different perspectives within America, our students will leave our school system with a misguided perspective that the ‘dominate culture’ is the only way to access the American Dream!”
