NCSBE gots on the "Equity" train at their meeting this month.

At the meeting, James Ford was asked simply to define "Equity."

His didn't answer the question. He provided, instead, a buzzword word salad.

Here's the article that quote came from.
It goes on to recite the same lines we've heard for a decade now about black students, yet like Ford's CREED project, offers no solutions save one... (next tweet)

SBE Chairman Eric Davis gave us a hint:
“This is our intentional effort to push back on those forces and to do things to create a necessary change so that every student in North Carolina gets the education we need them to have and they deserve."

What forces?

Success = “where there’s no discernible difference in the academic achievement of our students across racial, ethnic, geographic, economic or any other type of line.”

So, the goal is everyone does the same even if it's awful?
Lofty.

"Notably absent from the plan are any general statements about public school funding."

Ah, there it is. More money for a set of undefined buzzwords & social justice programs masquerading as academics?

Equity will cost $$. Just ask #WCPSS whose Office of Equity Affairs costs taxpayers over $1 million a year.

And what will the Board of Ed's Strategic Equity Plan include?
#nced
"increasing the number of culturally-relevant and equity-focused resources for teachers.."
What does that mean?
It sounds a lot like #WCPSS's "equity framework" which mimics the controversial SPLC's Teaching Tolerance Anti-Bias Framework.
