Description

Develop the skills and historical understanding to lead courageous conversations about race, power, and equity in your school community.

Without courage we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.”

*Maya Angelou

Overview

Leading inclusive schools, where all students are afforded opportunities to achieve, requires an understanding of the intersections of race, power, and privilege and calls for leaders who have the courage and capacity to engage in thoughtful conversation and action in their school communities.

Race, Equity, and Leadership in Schools, a program of The Principals’ Center, offers an historical and cultural context for understanding how inequality plays out in schools and provides educators with the skills and confidence to lead more excellent, equitable schools. Participants will learn to recognize structures that perpetuate inequality, address assumptions about how people learn, and create opportunities for more children to succeed.

Program Details

In this four-day institute, you will gather with educators from across the country to explore the role of racism in creating and sustaining educational inequity. You will investigate the importance of personal and group accountability in addressing inequity, and practices for increasing community engagement and promoting open dialogue. You will return home ready to implement concrete strategies for building a more inclusive school community where all children can achieve at high levels.

Objectives

  • Investigate the many causes of individual, institutional, and systemic racial inequality
  • Deepen your understanding of why discussions of race, equity, and leadership matter
  • Explore the variety of changes needed to create a more inclusive future
  • Identify concrete strategies for building inclusive institutions and build your toolkit to teach, model, and practice inclusion

Who should attend

  • K-12 educators interested in deepening their understanding of the intersections of race, power, and privilege in our society and schools
  • School-level teams composed of principals, assistant principals, and educators in other leadership roles
  • Teams composed of school and district leaders
  • State-level school administrators
