Homework Gap Convening


About the Convening

The Broadband Infrastructure Office and the William Ida Friday Institute for Educational Innovation are hosting the 2017 Homework Gap Convening. A follow-up to the 2016 Redefining Equity convening, the 2017 convening will focus on one issue impacting equity in schools—the Homework Gap.

The purpose of the convening is two-fold: to reveal new data on the scope and breadth of the homework gap in NC, and engage stakeholders and subject matter experts in designing solutions to close the gap.
