The Opportunity Gap

August 7, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm PDT

Generally speaking, opportunity gap refers to inputs (the unequal or inequitable distribution of resources and opportunities), while achievement gap refers to outputs (the unequal or inequitable distribution of educational results and benefits). America prides itself on creating the opportunity for all citizens to “pull themselves up by their bootstraps.” We aspire to have a fair playing field and want every child to have the opportunity to succeed. There are strong indicators that we are not living up to our aspirations. Many communities and individuals are experiencing a tilted playing field. How can we respond?

Here is the conversation guide. Please pay particular attention to the questions in Round 2.

Please register via Calendly by clicking the conversation date below and selecting the open time slot. If there are no options to click a date that means that our conversation has been filled. You will receive a confirmation email right away.

We are a low overhead, open-source, grassroots effort. Your donations help to make our online conversation offerings possible. A link to our donation page will be found on your registration confirmation page.
