Based on civil rights data released by the U.S. Department of Education, ProPublica has built an interactive database to examine racial disparities in educational opportunities and school discipline. Using the database, you can look up more than 96,000 individual public and charter schools and 17,000 districts to see how they compare with their counterparts.
Read more about (and access) the database as well as get tips for searching for and connecting with school-specific information and district-wide profiles.

Processing speed is the pace at which you take in information, make sense of it, and begin to respond. This information can be visual, such as letters and numbers. It can also be auditory, such as spoken language. Having slow processing speed has nothing to do with how smart kids are—just how fast they can take in and use information. It may take kids who struggle with processing speed a lot longer than other kids to perform tasks, both school-related and in daily life.
Understood.org offers what is essentially a suite of resources on processing speed, which includes articles, short videos, 1-page fact sheets, and everything in English and Spanish. Read more about and access this wide array of resources.

We are pleased to share with you this blog post written by CPIR’s own Myriam Alizo. She describes her personal journey as a parent learning that her four-year-old daughter had speech delays and attention issues. What to do? Like so many other parents, Myriam knew nothing about early childhood delays, IEPs, the IDEA, or the help that was available for families whose children have disabilities.
That all changed when her daughter’s backpack one day contained a flyer from the Parent Center in Miami. And doors and paths were opened… it’s a journey that has taken Myriam deep into the heart of the Parent Center network…
…but we’ll let Myriam tell you the story herself. From Miami to New Jersey, indeed.
This video series from the ECTA Center highlights strategies, practices, and approaches for effectively preparing and supporting new, or emerging, family leaders to engage in systems-level advocacy and decision making. The videos are a series of conversations with family leaders. The 4 videos are a series of conversations with family leaders answering these 2 questions:
- What may keep families from getting involved in leadership?
- What can programs do to support families with taking on leadership roles?
