During the 2012 OYE Conference, in partnership with the Center for Education Policy Research, we presented our Education Equity Training. This interactive training utilized geo-maps to challenge participants to see education from an equity lens and to understand the relationships between socio-economic status, health, supportive relationships and academic success.
During the training, Daniel Ball, a recent graduate from RFK Charter High School shared his personal educational journey. Daniel stressed the importance of having caring and supportive adults in his life. Now that he has graduated, he says, “it feels out of this world amazing!”
