Equity & Excellence Project (EEP)
The Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh is the Pennsylvania State lead in the Equity and Excellence Project (EEP). EEP explicitly supports national and state advocacy, engagement and education reform efforts throughout the National Urban League affiliate movement and with our partners in the Campaign for High School Equity (CHSE). While ultimately we seek to improve outcomes for underserved students, our more immediate intent – through our partnership with the CHSE – is to build the capacity of the civil rights community to lead more substantively the community engagement, analyses and planning and policy across the five EEP focus areas in a more intentional and meaningful fashion.
- Common standards
- Improved access to high-quality curricula and effective teachers
- Comprehensive, aligned and transparent education & employment data systems
- Equity and Excellence at scale;
- Out of school time learning (emphasis on expanded day and summer learning.)
