This workshop also will provide common language regarding equity in national, state and local school practices. This is the first workshop in the equity and inclusion training series.
Education and Inclusion: Understanding and Dismantling Barriers to Equity (Part 2)
This workshop explores how education stakeholders see and treat students and how such treatment can inhibit or advance students’ opportunities to learn. The successful incorporation of equity-focused policies and practices requires a deeper understanding and discussion on the internal perceptions and benefits of school leaders regarding students and their families.
