Leveraging Time for School Equity
Indicators to Measure More and Better Time for Learning

Using standardized test scores as the main measure of educational achievement is not enough to capture the complexity of a student’s or school’s needs, challenges, and successes. Leveraging Time for School Equity: Indicators to Measure More and Better Learning Time presents a new set of comprehensive, rich, and meaningful measures of what matters to students, schools, and systems.  

The framework of twenty-four indicators emerged via extensive research and collaboration with school designers, community organizers, researchers, local funders, and other partners of the Ford Foundation’s More and Better Learning Time initiative. The project aims to use learning time as a lever for improving educational opportunities for students in the nation’s most underserved school systems.
