In order to advance equity, educational leaders must overcome institutional obstacles and be ready to take the next steps. District procedures to assess ways in which policies, practices, and initiatives undermine racial equity will be shared. Join Dr. Pedro Noguera for a riveting and inspiring presentation. AASA’s Executive Director, Dan Domenech, opens the session, and Mort Sherman, Associate Executive Director, moderates.  This edWeb podcast discussion centers on assessing readiness for courageous conversations about best practices to mitigate the effects of racism and poverty while addressing the social-emotional and academic needs of students and staff. 

Essential questions include: 

  • What situational strategies do leaders need to talk about race and equity? 
  • How do district leaders generate the will to change? 
  • How do racial equity outcomes get reported routinely in today’s political climate? 
  • How can district leaders share goals and work with colleagues to develop an equity action plan? 
  • Why should system leaders view racial inequity as a structural problem rather than a cultural problem attributed to historically marginalized populations? 

Listeners learn about strategies to address systemic disparities and inequities in order to benefit all students. 

This edWeb podcast is of particular value to school superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring leaders.
