What is Equity through an HC Lens? USHCA DefinitionEquity in HC means ensuring equally high outcomes for all students by ensuring highly effective teachers and leaders, especially in our high needs schools. Our Perspective 5 In Real Terms Students & schools that are *underperforming* have an equal or greater proportion of teachers and leaders that are effective+ and beyond their first year * We use underperforming to focus equity on student results. Underperforming may correlate with income, race, and other factors, but it is not synonymous.

Making High Needs Schools More Attractive Types of Competitive Advantages Available 20 Leadership – Strong leaders attract and retain talent. Strong leaders are also less likely to tolerate ineffective teaching. Working conditions – Positive working conditions increase the likelihood that teachers will be attracted to the school and stay. Conditions, such as, workload, school safety and quality of school leaders and colleagues are significant. Ability to have opportunities for upward mobility – High performing teachers want to have the opportunity for leadership. Compensation – Most teacher compensation systems do not take into account incentives for taking on additional and challenging work. Effective Human Capital Practices – Differentiated support to high needs schools and districts can be a major lever to making high needs schools attractive. Traditional placement processes that are based on seniority only acerbates the problem. Productivity of Peer Teachers – High performing teachers tend to move to schools where the average teacher is high performing. Poor performers tend to go to schools where teachers are lower performing.
