Expand Access, Realize Potential

School is about more than learning academic skills. It should offer students the chance to grow into their fullest selves, inclusive of who they are and where they come from.

That’s why we coach and train teachers to approach their lessons through a vision called Teaching for Equity. Teachers can expand students’ agency and access by affirming their strengths and identities, cultivating productive learning habits, and helping them connect more deeply with others.

“When I compare the schools with and without LE support, there is a very noticeable difference in outcomes. The LE team is flexible in adjusting as needed to meet the needs of the schools. In addition, the LE team has shared ideas that are coherent, appropriate, and always challenging instruction to improve.”
