The Center for Learner Equity partnered with the Camden Education Fund, a non-profit organization in New Jersey dedicated to accelerating progress in Camden’s public school system. The collaboration between the organizations resulted in the publication of two case studies, “Prioritizing Mindset and Relationships in a Tiered Behavior System” and “Developing Inclusive Educators with the Camden Teacher Pipeline’s Inclusive Education Program”. The first case study features the KIPP Lanning Square Middle School (KLSM) and details the school’s efforts to better support all students behaviorally and emotionally. The case study provides a comprehensive description of KLSM’s tiered behavior system and its early successes, in addition to the broader factors that may enable its success. “Developing Inclusive Educators with the Camden Teacher Pipeline’s Inclusive Education Program” highlights a strategy implemented in Camden to address the shortage of educators that are prepared to effectively teach students with diverse backgrounds and learning needs, including students with disabilities.
