COVID-19 has made the inequities in our schools stand out starker than ever. How do we make sure that we don't go back to business-as-usual after the pandemic is over?
Learning under exceptional circumstances shouldn't be about seat-time and maintaining the status quo. Here are ways we can help students learn at home without overburdening parents.
Parents have been inundated with remote learning resources, but what they really need is guidance and reassurance.
The Building for Equity framework provides practical resources for educators and school teams working toward school change who are aware that they must avoid quick fixes and easy answers but lack the guidance and tools to do so on their own.
I thought I knew a great deal about what mattered in schools. But nothing reinforced – and challenged – my beliefs like watching my oldest child start kindergarten.
Summer may be fast approaching, but it’s not time to close the book on the 2018 - 2019 school year just yet. Students aren’t the only people who’ve learned something in the classroom. The end of the year is the perfect time to reflect on lessons educators themselves have learned over the past few months, and a time for teachers to gather and pinpoint successes and challenges to better prepare for the year ahead.
If equity is relegated to a strand or track at every conference without also being integrally, centrally located in each track, then we are not providing the impetus to prioritize it.
