Our Definition Of Equity
Equity exists when race and income are no longer the most reliable predictors of student success. It is present when systems work to ensure that each student receives what they need when they need it in order to develop to their full academic and social potential.
Southern Policy and Practice Network
The Southern Education Foundation (SEF)’s Southern Policy & Practice Network (SP&PN) is designed to enhance advocates’ organizational communications infrastructure, while leveraging data and research to support networking, knowledge sharing, and ultimately coordinated action. SP&PN aligns their work across the states of Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas to create shared support in addressing the most urgent matters facing students with regard to creating increased equity in public education.
