Without Competency There Can Be No Equity

Wednesday February 1, 2023
10:45 - 11:45 AM
Room 243-245

Equity has become a powerful theme in our nation, but to actually achieve more equitable outcomes for poor children in our schools, we must learn more about why our existing system produces so many struggling learners. This is a fixable problem, but not within the existing mindset of one-size-fits-all instruction that exists in most schools. To achieve greater equity for our students, we must pursue changes in our system that allow us to meet kids at their level of readiness. Competency based learning is the antidote to the over-hurried, over-tested instructional systems we've been using for decades. Participants will understand the history of competency based learning, the basic principles of this model, and consider how to use it in their own schools. They will learn about schools and nations around the world that are rapidly moving toward competency to replace the one-size-fits-all curriculum-driven system that is harming our most vulnerable students.
