Our Approach

 
 

As educators, we witness the challenges our students face both in our schools and in our communities. We know how difficult it can be to serve every student in every class at the highest level. And we see the impacts of current racist practices and the legacy of our nation's long history of oppression and injustice. We've also witnessed students experience educational success and outcomes beyond what we could hope when we hold high expectations, engage our students through culturally responsive practices, and support their social and emotional development. 

Equity.How believes that in order to address current inequities, educators need the skill sets and mindsets to address racism and classism directly. Just as educators learn to write lesson plans or best practices for assessing students, educators can develop their racial literacy, knowledge of best practices for serving diverse populations, and other skills needed to confront equity challenges. Through our services and sessions, we help education communities accomplish their goals with equity at the forefront. We provide a framework and tools based on current theory and best practices in equity work. We are building a shared vision for equity and a community of educators who are working to make that vision become a reality.
