Educational Equity

About Greater Baltimore Urban League

The Greater Baltimore Urban League (GBUL) defines educational equity as providing all students, regardless of biological, behavioral or social factors, with the appropriate supports to perform well in school and obtain positive post-secondary opportunities. These supports include:

  • Social and emotional resources as needed and promptly;
  • Providing all students with access to rigorous and well-rounded curriculum along with the appropriate supplemental material to support learning the content;
  • Providing parents/guardians with information to empower them to make decisions about their child’s academics and career trajectory in a comprehensive manner;
  • Holding all stakeholders, inclusive of State Education Agencies, Local Education Agencies, Students, Parents/Guardians and other identified partners, accountable for their role in school and student outcomes.​ ​

Our Approach to Educational Equity
