The Redding Consortium for Educational Equity: Purpose

The Redding Consortium for Educational Equity (Redding Consortium) was created to recommend policies and practices to the Governor and Delaware General Assembly that will achieve educational equity and improve educational outcomes for all Pre-K to grade twelve students in the City of Wilmington and northern New Castle County Delaware. To fulfill this mandate, the Redding Consortium will monitor educational progress and outcomes of low-income students, English learners, and other students at risk. It will identify the barriers to educational equity and improved educational outcomes and recommend actions for overcoming these barriers.

Read the statement from Senator Elizabeth “Tizzy” Lockman and Representative Nnamdi Chukwuocha about the state settlement on education equity in Delaware.

The Consortium’s Definition of Educational Equity

The Redding Consortium’s definition for educational equity states: “Educational equity requires safe, secure, and student-focused learning environments where every student is intentionally provided access to the support, resources, and opportunities they need to reach their full academic and social potential, in and out of the classroom.”

Building on Work

The Redding Consortium builds on the work of the Wilmington Education Improvement Commission (WEIC) and the Wilmington Education Advisory Committee as well as other education improvement proposals and efforts. While focused on Wilmington and New Castle County, the Redding Consortium will address issues and options that impact educational equity and outcomes statewide and may recommend systemic changes to better serve all Delaware students. WEIC has officially sunset, but you can still access WEIC-related material in the “WEIC Archive” section of this website.
