Tony Evers, CCSSO and the Aspen Institute Release Commitments for Advancing Educational Equity in States

"Across the nation, kids of color, kids with disabilities, those learning English, and those from economic disadvantage face challenges that their peers do not. And unfortunately, some of those challenges are a result of policies and practices we have influence or control over. As leaders of state education agencies, we have a moral imperative to help remove any barriers that stand in the way of a student's success," said Tony Evers, Wisconsin Superintendent of Public Instruction and Past President of the CCSSO Board of Directors. "I am confident that the resources we have developed will help education leaders achieve that goal. I am proud of the work my fellow state chiefs have poured into this issue and would like to thank both CCSSO and the Aspen Institute Education and & Program for their assistance. My hope is that we can capitalize on the momentum we have built to close opportunity gaps for all kids."
