Continuous Improvement Learning Series: Using “Street Data” to Support Equity, Pedagogy, and School Transformation (In-Person)

Using the guiding text “Street Data” (Safir & Dugan, 2021) we will explore how we can engage in educational transformation that is truly student-centered. Together we will learn more about how we can shift from focusing on “fixing” and “filling” academic gaps to envisioning and rebuilding the system from the student up—with classrooms, schools, and systems built around students’ brilliance, cultural wealth, and intellectual potential. Participants will be reminded that what is measurable is not the same as what is valuable and that data can be humanizing, liberating, and healing. 

*(Year-Long Series: Sep 23, Oct 21, Dec 9, Jan 27, Mar 3  |  9:30 am - 2:30 pm)

Equity Traps & Tropes (Virtual)

Join us for this session with Dr. Jamila Dugan, co-author of the best-selling book 'Street-Data: A next-generation model for equity, pedagogy, and school transformation'. Together we will explore how the common equity traps and tropes that exist in our systems keep us from realizing equitable school transformation and use that awareness to understand how these shortcuts and default practices get in the way of our meaningful school equity efforts.
