What is Equitable Teaching?

At its core Equitable Teaching is a belief system. One that is founded on the opinion that every child should have their learning outcomes met through the accessibility of their general education teacher. This is a shift in the perspective form the idea of “inclusion” which solely focuses on location, where students may join their peers in the general education classroom; however the responsibility of their learning outcomes still remains that of the special education teacher and staff.  Central to the mindset training and coaching of Equitable Teaching is this shift from the focus on location to the focus on the general education teacher in collaboration with educational staff and parents.  With the opinion that accessibility must extend beyond the physical location of the classroom to the general educators within those classroom, it is my belief that true equity exists when all students can have their learning outcomes met through this accessibility.
