Does My Collection Reflect My Community? Diversity in the School Library

In this webinar panelists will discuss the value of maintaining a book collection that not only reflects the school community, but also is reflective of the global community of which we all are a part. Recognizing that centering diversity means centering the stories, experiences, and voices of historically marginalized people, including people of color, indigenous voices, LGBTQIA+ individuals and allies, differently-abled individuals, and neurodiverse voices.

Paper Thin? Why All High School Diplomas Are Not Created Equal

This webinar focused on a new report from the Alliance for Excellent Education, “Paper Thin? Why All High School Diplomas Are Not Created Equal.” The report analyzes the degree to which traditionally underserved students graduate from high school having earned a college- and career-ready diploma in comparison with their peers for the Class of 2014. The analysis reveals that while many states offer students multiple pathways to a diploma, not all pathways align with college- and career-ready expectations.
