In order to strive for excellence in American education, access to opportunity must be provided for all children, regardless of their socioeconomic background and circumstances. This brief continuing education course, developed using information from UCLA’s Center for Mental Health in Schools, summarizes interventions to enhance equity in education from the classroom outward. Additionally, strategies to rework operational infrastructure to transform student and learning supports are discussed as well as ways to assist policy makers and school improvement planners in pursuing equal opportunity for all students.

Course Objectives

1. Outline the components of the five-part framework to guide policymaking for enhancing access to opportunity for all school-aged children.

2. Discuss strategies to overcome barriers to learning and teaching from the classroom outward.
