The Hill Changing America | The rising tide cant lift LD students sinking boats
As featured in The Hill’s Changing America, Eye to Eye President Marcus Soutra explains the importance of targeted universalism for addressing the disparities facing students with learning differences.
When it comes to the needs of students with learning differences (LD), our education system too often settles for equality rather than strives for true equity. A school with programs to help every kid do better on tests — that’s equality. Now imagine if this same school failed to provide any test-day accommodations to disabled students. This is the difference between equality and equity.
