Evaluating, Ensuring, and Monitoring Access

As they are trying to work towards educational equity, our partners are keeping care for all at the center, designing deeper instruction for worthwhile learning, and prioritizing those in their community with least access. In this way, educators can avoid exacerbating existing inequities.
