OSSE, in collaboration with Dr. Malone and Dr. Al’Uqdah of Howard University, will provide equity trainings specifically for school-based educators and staff. Schools have the responsibility to promote equitable outcomes for all students; however, national and local data demonstrate persistent racial/ethnic and socioeconomic inequities in special education identification and the use of exclusionary discipline practices.
