K-12 education efforts to close achievement gaps are increasingly shifting away from policies of educational equality and toward ones that advance educational equity, ensuring that all students have the resources they need for success after high school.

Creating educational equity requires system-wide reform efforts that address academic expectations, access to learning opportunities, high-quality instruction, resource allocation, and accountability to achieve educational equity. The Research Brief, “Building Equitable Environments in School Districts” provides detailed strategies, resources, and tools for district and school leaders to create an environment of educational equity.
