The Educational Equity Center (EEC) at The Academy for Educational Development is a national, non-profit, advocacy organization dedicated to decreasing and eventually eliminating discrimination from all school systems. The EEC believes in the inclusive education approach and has implemented this technique in many school systems. Established in 1982, EEC embraces and instills the concept that understanding the connections between gender, racial, and disability biases can enhance the quality and success of an educational program. The organization's main objectives focus on equity and integration, and include developing early childhood education programs; creating equity-based, hands-on science programs for teachers, parents, and children from pre-kindergarten through third grade; and promoting integration of people with disabilities into all educational levels, specifically addressing the needs and rights of females with disabilities. EEC publishes brochures and reports on various issues as well as a curriculum guide for teachers.
