In this highly interactive workshop participants will strengthen their abilities to recognize and respond effectively to bias and inequities in their spheres of influence. We will work on developing a deep and layered understanding of how inequity and equity operate in schools and the dangers of adopting simplistic approaches–or “equity detours”–to inequity. We also will explore a set of basic equity principles that can guide effective, evidence-based equity efforts classrooms and schools.
By attending this session, attendees will leave with…
- A deeper understanding of equity and inequity and how they operate in schools
- A research-based set of equity principles that guide effective equity progress in schools
- Stronger abilities to identify even subtle bias and inequity
