The Equity in Education Coalition (EEC) is a state wide coalition working towards a more targeted and comprehensive approach to improve educational achievement and growth as well as closing the opportunity gap throughout the State of Washington.
We believe that policy makers, advocates, stakeholders, academics and decision makers must recognize that the needs of under-represented groups must be addressed in a coordinated and effective manner. The EEC recognizes that the opportunity and achievement gap is not a silo issue and the solution isn’t either.

As a Coalition representative of communities of color and low-income communities, we are taking a strategic approach to closing the opportunity gap that takes into account the effects of systemic and institutional racism, the trauma of poverty, homelessness and hunger, family instability and the hurdles faced by children and parents whose first language is not English.
