Equity and Personalized Learning
The ILN’s premiere equity work can be found in its “Whole Child Approaches to Personalized Learning” Peer Learning Community (PLC). This PLC consists of ten state education agencies (SEAs) who are committed to advancing educational equity through personalized learning and whole child support. In particular, these SEAs are looking for teaching and learning practices that will close opportunity gaps and improve the academic achievement and life outcomes of students of color, students from low-income families, English Learners, and students with disabilities. In 2018, this PLC will work to communicate how personalized learning can address longstanding inequities in public education, establish partnerships to support the work, and develop flexible, rigorous and equitable student pathways.
