The Academy for Educational Equity is housed in the College of Education and Health Professions at the University of Arkansas and is designed to increase the effectiveness and support of early-career teachers working in hard‐to‐staff, high‐poverty schools across the state. Our work is intentionally focused on designing programs that retain teachers early in their careers and equip them with the tools and resources to be successful in high‐poverty schools.
Our Vision — How We Elevate Education Throughout the State
Creating a ripple effect of teacher leadership through meaningful mentoring, coaching, and instructional support.
Transforming how educators are prepared to deeply understand what it means to teach in communities experiencing poverty.
We create outcomes‐based training programs for educators based on innovative best practices in serving communities experiencing poverty. Our work is centered around being responsive to the needs of local school districts.
