"Knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged” (Continental Congress, 1787). Even before the Constitution was ratified, education has been recognized as a national priority. Since then, noteworthy efforts have been made to improve access and its relative, equity, but much remains to be done. This session looks at equity through a different lens — one that exposes time as its enemy. Perhaps because time is so easily tracked that its use as measure of higher learning is so pervasive, but there’s a problem. It’s wrong. Even when the college entrance doors are wide open and adequate financial resources are available, time-constrained programs and systems perpetuate inequity. We can do better. With competency-based design, delivery and assessment, the inequities of time disappear and we can step closer to equitable access.
