Today’s show is part one of a two-part conversation about a growingly important topic within education: Equity. In order to help me learn more about that topic, I talked with Director of Special Education at Shoshone-Bannock School District in Pocatello, Idaho, and host of the Leading Equity podcast Dr. Sheldon L. Eakins. Dr. Eakins has been involved in K-12 Education his entire career at every level as a teacher, administrator, and now a director. Dr. Eakins is looking to spread to word about the necessity for more education about equity within schools through his podcast. Equity is his passion, and I am honored to have him on the show today.
