Academic streaming has led to the disproportionate representation of students from historically and currently marginalized groups in lower-stream programming, leading to poorer outcomes. When streaming is removed, students of varying abilities will be in the same class, so differentiation is key. This webinar will explore the moral imperative for destreaming, the benefits of destreaming, and the changes that need to be made to instruction to ensure that all students in your class can access the curriculum.
