Students at the Center: Deeper Learning Research Series

The quality of instruction for low-income students and students of color is increasingly becoming a concern in the United States. This report calls for fundamental changes in curriculum, assessment, and policy to ensure equity among students regardless of socioeconomic status. Access to a more rigorous curriculum for underserved students can bridge gaps by equipping students with the deeper learning skills they need to be college ready. The report proposes that implementing student-centered practices throughout school systems can provide all students with continuous opportunities to practice 21st-century skills through high-quality instruction and deeper learning.
