Series Overview

Lenses on Equity: The call for equity across our schools, and school-based practices that promote it

OICL’s 2015-16 Speaker Series aims to build the capacity of school communities to work towards equity in education by showcasing cutting-edge ideas of leading scholars and practitioners, and facilitating dialogue about school-based applications of these ideas. Sessions will explore different lenses on equity, such as identity, resource allocation, curriculum & instruction, school discipline, and community-based solutions. All sessions will address the essential question: What can we do in our roles as educators to promote equity and create conditions for all of our students to have impactful and transformative academic experiences in safe learning environments?
