TOPIC: Blueprint for Maryland’s Future: Neighborhood Indicators of Poverty
What can schools do to address the growing inequities in public education? Drawing on his experience in Texas and as the Maryland State Superintendent of Schools, Mohammed Choudhury will discuss how to increase opportunities and improve outcomes for students disproportionately affected by systemic barriers. He will describe how a multi-dimensional approach to assessing poverty and allocating resources narrows gaps in opportunity and learning.
