Examining Inequitable Outcomes in K-12 Education and What You Can Do About It
Saturday, April 4th, 11:15am -12:30pm - Session II
Disproportionality is rampant in U.S. education: the disaggregated data show inequities in student achievement, disciplinary referrals, placement in talented and gifted programs and/or honors/advanced classes, sense of belonging, attendance, and so on. In this workshop, you will gain tools to examine inequities in your school, how adult mindsets and beliefs impact their actions and ways to lead for increased equity. We will draw from theories of adult learning, facilitative leadership, and improvement of science methodology. You will leave this workshop with clear next steps to take in your realm of influence and specific points to consider for leading change.
