Advancing equitable college access for all students!

Our mission

The LDM Group assists K-12 educational institutions, higher educational communities and community-based organizations in developing system-wide change to advance equitable college access for all students. 

We believe

Regardless of the student’s current zip code, educators must provide equitable decision-making through aligning data that informs instruction.  Educators must promote systemic academic improvements through the lens of equity by closing opportunity gaps and changing the mind-set barriers which prevent equitable college access.
