WEBINAR:  Equality or Equity: Toward a Model of Community-Responsive Education

Jeff Duncan-Andrade, Professor of Latina/o Studies and Race and Resistance
Studies at San Francisco State University.

There is too little research and writing done by community responsive educators to document effective practices in schools serving vulnerable and wounded youth. Duncan- Andrade draws from 30 years of teaching and research on effective teaching practices in schools around the world to provide insights to educators and school leaders on effective systems change, program building, and daily educational practices. This discussion equips leaders and educators to leverage research-based critiques of up-by-your-bootstraps theories of individualized success being pedaled to schools. In their place, it offers concrete, time-honored, research based strategies that foreground relationships, relevance, and responsibility as essential ingredients to fundamentally altering the business-as-usual approach that continues to fail so many of our young people. Through the voices of young people, educators, and cross-disciplinary research this talk reissues license for community responsive practices that transform engagement and educational outcomes for all children, relieving undeserved suffering in schools and communities.
