Educational Equity Summit: Learning and Leading for Systemic Racial and Social Justice
“Where equity is the mindset, equality is the result. All our children, regardless of their life circumstances, deserve an excellent education that helps them reach high standards of performance. The key to unlocking that potential in every child is ensuring that he or she is embraced in a culture of high expectations and learns from great teachers in a great school run by great leaders.” - The Connecticut State Board of Education’s Five-year Comprehensive Plan, 2016–21.

We share a strong commitment to reflecting, acknowledging, and adjusting beliefs and actions around equity through the lens of race and culture. We will collaborate to provide opportunities for educators to explore and dive deeper into understanding the structural and personal barriers that contribute to educational inequity. We are using this summit as a springboard for putting theory into action across a continuum of starting points and understandings by transforming systems to ensure racial and social justice.
