Exposing Hidden Funding Inequities
Date: Tuesday, February 27
Time: 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PST
Here, you’ll learn about an exciting new data source that will fuel your efforts to eliminate inequities in school funding. For the first time, ESSA requires states to report data on spending per pupil at the school level. While states are making critical decisions right now about how to calculate and share these data, you can help ensure that they make smart decisions that lead to high quality, usable data. We’ll also cover some of the specific new opportunities that ESSA provides to use those data to promote equitable spending at the state and district levels.
Presenters will include:
Ary Amerikaner, Director of P-12 Resource Equity, The Education Trust
Ivy Smith Morgan, Senior Analyst Resource Equity, The Education Trust
Moderator: Syritha Robinson, Associate National and State Partnerships, The Education Trust
