Learn about Marlborough’s process to investigate SES concerns, and complications and benefits in their efforts.

Learning Objectives: Participants will learn one model for evaluating the impact of students' socioeconomic status on their social and educational experience at their school, and some of the complications that arise as you attempt to address those impacts.
