It’s Time Now #writeeveryday

My Post (8)

I was lucky enough to spend the day at an Equity Summit with Rebecca Haslam and Sue McCormack and there’s literally too much swirling in my head to process.  We were sitting with educators and students from across the state and having some really real conversations about equity literacy and how to move beyond cultural competency. It was beyond powerful and it was clear that there’s a lot that’s broken in our systems, but through today I heard there’s a lot that’s good too.  Here are some BIG takeaways from the day:

  • start…just start
  • there’s a difference between equity literacy and cultural competence
  • if you see someone doing something you support, show it (thanks Mike)
  • our students are fountains of insight…we should use it

And there’s about a thousand other things, but I look to this quote:

It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. 
-Frederick Douglas

It’s important for us to start these conversations now and early in our students learning.
