Title:Closing educational achievement gaps for Latino/a students in Utah
Source:http://www.cdlfu.org/CDLFU docs/white paper
Organization:Centro de la Familia de Utah
Short Description:This paper argues that it is crucial that educational leaders, community advocates, and policymakers engage in analyzing, discussing, and proposing policy solutions that provide opportunities that equal the playing field for all its schoolchildren to succeed, particularly Latina/o children.
Annotation:At atime when diversity in Utah’s communities and schools has increased to historically high levels, particularly among the Latina/o community, current federal mandates require greater state, district and school accountability for addressing gaps in performance. However, state-level reporting reveals that regardless of the indicator, gaps in access and outcomes exist overwhelmingly for students of color in Utah. As this analysis indicates, the state’s educational, political, and business leadership are uniquely situated to respond to this challenge in ways that support districts, schools, leadership and teachers in their efforts to alter this current reality. This paper argues that it is crucial that educational leaders, community advocates, and policymakers engage in analyzing, discussing, and proposing policy solutions that provide opportunities that equal the playing field for all its schoolchildren to succeed, particularly Latina/o children.
