Future Ready Schools Invites You to Participate in a Webinar
Equity IS Education
Dr. Rosa Perez-Isiah, Director of Elementary, Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District, CA (@RosaIsiah)
Thomas C. Murray, Director of Innovation for Future Ready Schools®, Alliance for Excellent Education (@thomascmurray)
Equity in our educational system and closing opportunity gaps in education are epic topics throughout the nation. We recognize the issues and feel a sense of urgency.
Many school communities are attempting to address these issues, but are addressing them in isolation. What we often fail to realize is that equity is education. If we want to close opportunity gaps for students, especially for marginalized groups, we must understand that these two issues are inseparable.
This webinar will highlight the need to change our mindset and practices on these two issues. Dr. Perez-Isiah will highlight effective approaches that will help merge the topics of equity and gaps in teaching and learning. Let’s move from achievement “gap-gazing” to achievement gap-closing in our school communities.
Register for the webinar and submit questions for the panelists below.
