The Kentucky Department of Education is seeking feedback on the Educator Equity Plan it filed with the United States Department of Education (USED) on June 1.
USED required each state education agency to submit a new State Educator Equity Plan in accordance with the requirements of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). As required by ESEA, in its plan, each state had to, among other things, describe the steps it will take to ensure that “poor and minority children are not taught at higher rates than other children by inexperienced, unqualified, or out-of-field teachers.” To prepare a strong plan, the Kentucky Department of Education analyzed what stakeholders and the data have to say about the root causes of inequities and developed solutions to meet those challenges.

Any feedback on the plan should be sent to Jennifer Baker by 5 p.m. ET on July 15.
