  • Author(s):

The majority of students in the K-12 public education system attend mid-to-high poverty schools, (National Center for Education Statistics, 2019) which frequently results in lower educational outcomes. Furthermore, there is a disproportionate number of Black and Latino students who attend high-poverty public schools (National Center for Education Statistics, 2019), which perpetuates the racial achievement gaps in academic outcomes. One of the critical factors that contribute to this educational inequity in schools of poverty is the lack of resources, instructional materials, and financial support. Educational equity is defined by the varying needs of students across this country who receive individualized support to achieve academic and social success.
