  Watch this webinar.


School leaders know that the journey to equity can involve turmoil and controversy.

In this webinar, authors Alan Blankstein and Pedro Noguera share how in the most effective schools, equity is the most powerful means we have to lift all children to higher achievement. The authors of Excellence Through Equity will present leading-edge ideas from educational scholars, visionaries, and practitioners from multicultural  K-12 settings who have pursued equity goals and closed instructional and achievement gaps. Learn examples of high-leverage practices used by award-winning schools and districts, powerful classroom practices that lead to success for ELL, special ed and underserved students as well as for their more privileged peers.
