EQUITY FOR ALL

High quality teaching in our classrooms is not only about getting great academic results; it must also be about encouraging and equipping our students to use their voices to call out injustice and to build a more just world. We are more committed than ever to making sure ALL decisions that affect students and staff at KIPP Jacksonville are filtered through a lens of equity and racial justice.

Language is Power

To effectively discuss racial justice, social justice, and equity, it’s important to get clear on how KIPP defines these terms. We use the following definitions to guide our work.

Racial Justice: The proactive creation, examination and enforcement of policies, practices, attitudes and actions to promote equitable opportunities, outcomes and treatment for people of all races. Racial justice is a conscious act, an individual and institutional responsibility.

Social Justice: A vision of society in which the distribution of resources and power is equitable and all members are physically and psychologically safe and secure. Social justice involves social actors who have a sense of their own agency as well as a sense of social responsibility toward and with individuals and society.

Equity: A condition that balances two dimensions: fairness and inclusion. As a function of fairness, equity implies ensuring people have what they need to participate in school life and to reach their full potential (flourish). As a function of inclusion, equity ensures that essential educational programs, services, activities, and technologies are accessible to all.
