New Webinar Panel Features FirstSchool's Sharon Ritchie

Racial Equity at the District and Classroom Level

On November 12, 3:00-4:30 pm EST, the PreK-3rd Grade National Work Group will host Racial Equity at the District and Classroom Level. During the webinar, FPG senior scientist Sharon Ritchie will share her insights from FirstSchool’s site-based work across the country. Registration opens soon.

Gaps in educational opportunities and resources begin for children as early as their first year of life. Children of color experience complex barriers that contribute to vast disparities, and they often lag behind on important indicators of educational success, such as kindergarten readiness and third grade reading and math. However, schools and PreK-3rd grade classrooms can be laboratories of innovation to confront racial, class, and gender inequities.
