Rating: 3 Grade: 10th Comments: Each course needs to be given 12 months or longer. Given the current education crisis and teacher shortage, we are being given tasks and responsibilities beyond our scope and available time. This means we have little time to furthering our own education. Teachers are exhausted and the 6 month timeline given is not realistic. Then, we have to pay more just to give ourselves more time. It feels like a trap. I do not plan on purchasing any more courses from here and have advised all my teacher friends against it.

Rating: 10 Grade: K-5 Comments: Education for Equity provides AMAZING courses that pertain directly to what you need to learn as educators and the resources they use in their courses are very helpful in the field! I have taken 4 courses and have found them all to be extremely helpful with my students. Everyone who works at Education for Equity are helpful, prompt to respond, kind, and pleasant to work with. I spoke to the CEO today and he was extremely helpful and I appreciate his and Shekinah's support while getting a transcript. Overall,I highly recommend Education for Equity!
Rating: 1 Grade: 2nd Comments: I bought the 5 classes with the extended time to complete (18 months). I went to log on to continue and they closed my courses 6 months before they were due.
Rating: 1 Grade: kindergarten Comments: The students are a delight. The politics of the district and the office staff are horrible.
Rating: 1 Grade: 6-8 Comments: The course I took was fairly easy and interesting. However, it was a lot of work and I paid for a 2 month extension to finish it. I completed my course in July 2021 but never received the salary points for it. When I contacted the teacher of the course, he never responded. When I contacted education for equity, nobody responded. I am writing this review with the hope that someone will read it and finally respond to my emails.
Rating: 7 Grade: 12th Grade Comments: I gave the past school year a seven (7) since working virtually as most of us were working parents were being laid off, children became full-time caretakers, food shortages prevalent and support from relatives waned due to the frightening consequences of Covid 19.
Rating: 9 Grade: 10, 11 Comments: Good evening, Happy Thanksgiving Weekend! My name is Danny Hauger, and I host a weekly podcast interviewing outstanding educators, Inspiring Teachers, where we explore the "why" of teaching and spotlight a national guest in the field of education. We are looking for program funding to support this continued endeavor, we have recorded over 65 episodes without a commercial sponsor to this point, and are seeking a partner to help us release this continued archive of outstanding educational content. Would Education 4 Equity support us for $20 per week for a 30-second commercial reading of PSAs? Thanks for all you do! Here is a link to an episode sample. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRSUcTlfyi4&t=1s Please contact me if you have any questions!
Rating: 5 Grade: This past year I taught 4th grade multiple subjects. Comments: I gave this academic year a score of a 5 because the administration gave little support for behaviors and the school environment between staff and students was very stressful.
Rating: 9 Grade: I teach 8th grade math. Comments: I had experiences with students this year that truly changed my life, but I couldn’t give it a ten because that leaves no room for improvement.
Rating: 6 Grade: I teach 4th grade. Comments: It was a rough year because I was displaced. I was fortunate enough to find a permanent position in the middle of the school year.
Rating: 1 Grade: I teach 1st grade. (20 years teaching) Comments: I purchase my own supplies but I’m accustomed to that. It was a 1 because I had a nightmare class. Full of behavioral problems and had minimal support from administrators. I was unable to teach my class as I would’ve liked to. I feel like I failed the 10 great kids because of the out of control 15. I also received my first death threat.????. I was a disastrous year ????
