Classnotes Podcast (February 27, 2009) Schools across the country are examining how they will implement the Response to Intervention (RTI) frame that is intended to provide early assistance to children who are having difficulty learning. While RTI holds much promise, IDRA and others have pointed to its civil rights implications cautioning school leaders to protect children who, for example, may be misplaced into special education programs simply because they are minority or linguistically different. Bradley Scott , Ph.D., director of the IDRA South Central Collaborative for Equity, describes 11 equity conditions the national network of equity assistance centers believe must be in place for RTI to be successful. Bradley is interviewed by Rogelio López del Bosque, Ed.D., an senior education associate.
