 Berkeley's 2020 Vision: Equity in Education    


      Roadmap snip 

Roadmap to Educational Equity: The image above illustrates 2020 Vision's blueprint for achieving educational equity. 2020 Vision's approach is developmental. It supports the healthy, ongoing progression of a young person and through a wide variety of supports and approaches -- beginning with prenatal care through earliest learning, and extending past high school graduation.

Aligned priorities, indicators, and strategies: Six priorities drive the work of Berkeley’s 2020 Vision. Each priority is linked to an indicator to help us gauge the extent to which our efforts are making progress towards greater educational equity for Berkeley’s children and youth. Each priority also is supported by a set of strategies that partners have identified as promising practices to help eliminate racial disparities in our schools.

More about 2020 Vision’s priorities: Each priority was selected by 2020 Vision partners based on national research and best practices. These priorities are inter-related; for example, how well children read in 3rd grade is connected to how prepared they are to start kindergarten and how consistently they attend school.[1] Click here for more information on these priorities and how they are associated with critical benchmarks that have been demonstrated by research to link closely with a child’s well-being and later academic success.
