Analyzing state educator equity plans
The U.S. Department of Education (ED) is working to ensure that all students have equitable access to a quality education, including equitable access to excellent educators. As part of this effort, ED required all states to submit plans to help states and school districts increase access to excellent educators for the students who need them most.
These educator equity plans describe how states will ensure that students—particularly students from low-income families and students who represent racial/ethnic minorities—have equitable access to excellent educators. Each state’s plan conveys its commitment to achieving this goal.
ED tapped Westat to analyze the states’ approved plans.
