Episode 22: Do You Really Understand Equity?

May 9, 2022


Season 3, Episode 2:

Today, we hear the rallying cry for equity all around us. Education leaders champion its cause, but how seamlessly is the work folded into their everyday practice? Equity cannot stand alone or be part of a title given to some person working somewhere in the organization. For it to be realized, school and district leaders must see it as inseparable from other aspects of leadership and create systems that activate it in every classroom, for every student. In this episode, listen as two recognized superintendents, Tammy Campbell and Chaunte Garrett, share how they unpack and operationalize equity in their schools.
