West Palm Beach, Fla (Monday, August 17, 2020) — the American Consortium for Equity in Education (ACE-Ed.org) announced that the November issue of its official journal, AC&E/Equity & Access PreK-12, will highlight PreK-12 educators and others involved in education throughout the U.S. who have gone above and beyond to meet the needs of every learner and continue to do so in this age of equity.
Anyone interested in education is invited to nominate a teacher who is a daily standout in the battle for equity and access to learning. Nominations must be received by October 16, 2020.
“With some schools opening, some remaining online and others rolling out hybrid models—all within the confines of a horrible pandemic — we’re asking a lot from educators right now,” said President and Publisher Larry Jacobs. “We just want to recognize them and let them know that we understand the challenges they’re facing and we appreciate everything they’re doing.”
Since 2018, ACE-Ed.org has been working with expert practitioners and thought leaders to provide multimedia materials that move the needle on equity and access. In April, it launched the American Consortium for Equity in Education, serving thousands of equity-focused educators, business leaders and association representatives.
“We formed the Consortium to create a place where educators and the education industry can connect, share experiences, and work together for critical change,” said Executive Director Maia Appleby. “We’re excited about the response we’ve received and look forward to really digging into the challenges that are holding so many students back throughout the country.”
The Consortium works with dozens of organizations to share information entirely focused on equity and access. Recent collaborations include special sections on ace-ed.org that house equity-specific resources and data from the Johns Hopkins University Institute for Education Policy and ACT’s Center for Equity in Learning.
Thanks to industry support, there is no charge for equity-focused PreK-12 educators to join the Consortium and membership includes a subscription to the journal. The registration form is here.
The American Consortium for Equity in Education, publisher of the "Equity & Access" journal, celebrates and connects the educators, associations, community partners and industry leaders who are working to solve problems and create a more equitable environment for historically underserved pre K-12 students throughout the United States.
