Promoting Educational Equity in Disadvantaged Youth: The Role of Resilience and Social-Emotional Learning

Abstract

As we enter the second decade of the twenty-first century, education in America is at a critical turning point. Call for reform is widespread and exemplified by the documentary film Waiting for Superman, which highlights the fact that for many American children, access to a quality education is often literally a lottery. Equal access to educational opportunity is the philosophical cornerstone of the American public education system. Although significant advances towards realizing this goal have been made over recent decades, educational quality still varies widely, with Latino and African-American children being more likely to attend disadvantaged schools (Cauce, Cruz, Corona, & Conger, 2011).
