Reimagine Education for All: Equity and Targeted Universalism

Children, family, and situation differ not just at the individual level but also at the group level similarly to race, class, ability and other important indicators.  We can see this difference by either looking directly at how children and family are situated or by looking at data and outcomes.  In the contemporary world, education has often been touted as the great equalizer.  This very description is parity recognized on unequal situatedness.  For education to live up to this promise, it must design for equity 2.0 or targeted universalism. In professor powell's address to Illinois Action for Children he explores both some of the conditions, situatedness and moving toward a design that moves all students and groups to realize their full potential.
