Horace Mann once referred to schools as “the great equalizer”—that public institution with the capability of disrupting old social classes and promoting a more just society. Evidence shows us this can be the case for certain students. Additional evidence also shows that schools often replicate the broader inequities of society. If schools are to live up to their promise, educators must possess an equity stance and work together to actively disrupt such replication. The fifth of six in the series, this session will provide participants with practical suggestions on how to lead for equity at the classroom and school levels.
Audience: Administrators, teachers, school staffs, educational advocates
