In this session based on his book, Achieving Equity and Excellence (Solution Tree, 2020), Dr. Douglas Reeves will share the latest research on equity. Since the original publication of the 90 90 90 studies, we have learned a great deal about school improvement in high-poverty schools. This session will include compelling new evidence on how schools make a profound difference in the lives of students in poverty. Some of the evidence challenges conventional beliefs about dealing with students in poverty. The emerging research and science on this subject will help teachers, leaders, and policy makers allocate resources and time wisely to help students in poverty achieve their potential.
