Equity in Education

Can we achieve equity in education, if we don’t have equality across the country?

The Line on Equity

Recently, the world has been reminded of and confronted with issues of pervasive discrimination against members of our global community based on their skin color, race, ethnicity, or background. The resulting protests have raised awareness and sensitivity to the ongoing hardships and injustices that continue to threaten communities of color and other minorities across America.

In the midst of the unrest across our country comes an opportunity for open dialogue and much-needed action. To support the ongoing conversation, we have compiled information, articles, and research from Frontline Education, the Frontline Research & Learning Institute, and The Line to provide a repository of data-informed, action-based resources focused on issues of bias, discrimination, diversity, and equality.

The time to have these critical conversations is now and our hope is that these resources will serve as a starting point for meaningful discussion and thoughtful action.
