Public school students in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty do not have access to the broad array of additional instruction and enrichment activities in and out of school that more-affluent families take for granted – and that significantly contribute to learning. In this issue of Voices in Urban Education, a national cross-sector collection of authors – researchers, funders, school designers, and community and youth organizers – reflect on how they use increased and reimagined learning time to increase the equity of education systems.
In this interview, Michelle Renée, guest editor of AISR's winter 2015 issue of Voices in Urban Education, discusses how a broad range of partners have committed to reinventing educational time together to ensure equitable access to rich learning opportunities for all young people. Read Michelle's preface to the issue.
