Will schools finally close the achievement gaps that exist between the majority of students and those living in poverty or who come from certain cultural backgrounds? Author Donna Walker Tileston clearly identifies the power of response to intervention (RTI) when culture and poverty are essential factors in the planning process.

All children should have equal access to highly qualified teachers, a strong curriculum, and research-based instructional methods. RTI can make that hope a reality. The influence of culture and poverty cannot be overestimated; students facing such hurdles will often experience inequality in education. RTI, when implemented correctly, provides all students the chance they need to succeed. However, RTI is only as strong as the planning and research that go into developing individual school plans.

Understand why RTI is so important and how to achieve successful implementation in your school. Get a clear understanding of poverty and culture and learn how RTI can close achievement gaps related to these issues. Examine the critical planning phase of RTI and preview common pitfalls of implementation.
