Equity Institute:  Leading for Equitable Classrooms

Housed at the Wadsworth Atheneum, this two-day institute is offered in proximity to powerful and moving collections from both the Wadsworth and the Amistad Center for Arts and Culture. Utilizing these poignant images as backdrop and fodder, we launch deep conversations and exercises aimed at examining the impact of racism, privilege, and bias on learning and our educational systems. Over these two days, district teams engage in strategic planning for equitable access, experiences, and positive outcomes for all students.

My hats off to the Institute. You are taking a chance (courageous) on behalf of a basic human right violation (the gap-race) and the other “isms.” Thank you!!
