State Information Request: Equity in Education Policy

A state superintendent requested examples of how states have defined equity in code or rule. Our response includes legislation enacted since 2019 that have both explicitly focused on equity and provided some lens as to how that term should be interpreted or which student populations must be included in considerations of equity. To provide timely assistance to our constituents, State Information Requests are typically completed in 48 hours. They reflect an issue scan versus a comprehensive analysis.
