Abstract:

This text describes ways to increase awareness of the equity issues embedded in operating a charter school. The guide discusses seven specific equity challenges facing charter schools, examines key equity issues confronting all schools and the strategies to address them, provides a summary of relevant equity legislation, and includes a selection of basic resources. The seven key challenges for equity are the impact on public school districts, selection of students, family involvement, funding, accountability, teacher certification, and special education. Equitable practices are highlighted, and some of the components and strategies of equality are addressed: access, instructional materials, attitudes, language, interactions, learning and teaching styles, confronting bias and stereotypes in the classroom, tracking and ability grouping, family involvement, respect for diversity, and professional development, are addressed. Ways to assess progress in each of these practices are outlined. Since equity is embedded in many federal civil-rights laws affecting education, some of these laws, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Goals 2000, are covered. (Contains organizational resources and 57 references.) (RJM).
