Equity in education is everyone's responsibility. The Ohio has created a Strategic Plan, Each Child, Our Future that outlines how equity is represented in all parts of Ohio's education. According to their website, this plan was developed to ensure each student is challenged, prepared and empowered.
The Region 12 SST has implemented a pilot program, All In, that focuses on the elements of equity in education. The work is a partnership with other SSTs in eastern Ohio to understand the challenges and the effective practices around ensuring equity for each child in Ohio. In the pilot's first year, two districts, Ridgewood and Steubenville City, have been participating in professional learning sessions and are provided coaching and technical assistance for examining equity and social justice in their districts. Students were also brought together from the two districts this year to identify challenges and to work to create social justice projects for their schools to address inequities they may have discovered.
