Equity 101 Session 5

Building an Institutional Culture of Equity

What is the greatest obstacle for equity that all students face? The institution itself--whether a school or district--poses the greatest challenge to students from a diverse background in receiving an equitable education. As long as the educators within the institution remain unalarmed and uninformed as to why certain student groups--as defined by race, economics, and language--continue to perform below their peers, then a school site will never attain equity. Engage in this dynamic webinar which will address how to change institutional culture so that equity for all students can be achieved. Join Curtis Linton as he presents the key elements of institutional equity: Who are "we" as educators? Who are our students? And, what is the learning culture of the school? When institutional culture becomes equitable, all students succeed.
