By telling a personal story about a student she once had, Kate Gerson explains why we need to stop talking about the achievement gap and instead talk about the opportunity gap.
This clip is a portion of a keynote speech that Kate gave during the 2017 Winter Standards Institute presented by UnboundEd. Her speech explains how bias plays a detrimental role in American schools and shows there is a clear path to fighting the status quo through research that will challenge us to change mindsets and practices in order to support all students.
