E2 Framework

The IB Excellence and Equity (E2) initiative aims to support schools in their work to fully reflect their
diversity and academic excellence by collaborating with public IB World Schools in the USA.

This initiative challenges school leaders in the USA to consider how to elevate the conversation about
what is academically possible for low-income and minority students. The focus goes beyond proficiency,
with a wider focus on preparing all students to graduate with the skills and tools needed for post-
secondary education and lifelong learning. Estimative analysis of IB data coupled with National Center
for Education Statistics (NCES) data from the Common Core of Data (CCD) suggested that programme
demographics match the demographics of the school in only 1% of schools.
