How the Common Core Must Ensure Equity by Fully Preparing Every Student for Postsecondary Success

Produced by The Regional Equity Assistance Centers


“The nation’s 10 regional Equity Assistance Centers (EACs) are committed to the successful implementation of the Common Core State Standards (Common Core)….”

In this new position paper issued collectively by the EAC directors, the authors quickly underscore this commitment by identifying the critical equity issues that must be addressed if the new standards are to be implemented in a way that helps ensure that every student will succeed, especially those who have long been underserved.

This paper outlines six equity goals, along with key questions that educators should consider if the needs of all learners are to be appropriately and adequately met.

The paper concludes with a set of recommendations to help educators ensure equity as they continue implementing the new standards.
