Dr. John Squires, executive director of Advancement and Planning, has co-authored a three part series focused on how states can improve their efforts surrounding equity by creating an equity framework and using data. Along with Dr. Squires, Maxine Roberts and Claus von Zastrow also co-authored the Education Commission of the States, which is a national education policy organization for all 50 states. 

“It was an honor to work with them on this important project,” said Dr. Squires.  “This series of papers will be used by states and educational institutions in both K-12 and higher education as they strive to improve educational outcomes. As educational systems continue to deal with the pandemic, it is important that they examine its impact for each student group, and these policy briefs will help them to ensure equitable outcomes for all the students they serve.”

The three part series includes “Creating an Equity Framework that Supports Underserved Students”, “Using Student Data to Address Inequities”, and “Promising Practices in Creating an Equity Framework”. The series was created to help policymakers identify the barriers that impede success for underserved students in the state and create policies and programs to address any inequities. 

“There may not be any topic more important in education these days than equity,” said Dr. Bill Seymour, CSCC president. “ Dr. Squires does an excellent job along with his co-writers of showing us how the use of data can help educators better understand the problems that exist today and lead us toward meaningful solutions. We are proud to have John as part of the Cleveland State leadership team, and these articles are another indication of the strength to be found among our faculty and staff.”
