OEA SYMPOSIUM ON TRANSFORMATION IN PUBLIC EDUCATION
BRIDGING OPPORTUNITY AND ACHIEVEMENT — WORKING TOGETHER TO BREAK THE CYCLE OF POVERTY
POVERTY has a profound influence on student achievement. How do we work together across school communities to meet the learning needs of students in poverty, and empower each and every student to achieve and be ready for a world beyond their borders? What learning conditions, resources, practices and partnerships are necessary to ensure equal access to educational opportunities? Please join us for a provocative discussion to address these questions, identify solutions and opportunities to lead in bridging the opportunity and achievement gap.
