Quote of the week
From a new book
“Social-Emotional Engagement. Equitable schools address the needs of the whole student. In Chapter 2, we explore social aspects of the learning environment, including the creation of a welcoming climate as well as the value of restorative practices and efforts to improve student attendance, engagement, and participation.”
“The Equity Taxonomy”
by Dominique Smith, Nancy E. Frey, Ian Pumpian and Douglas E. Fisher

Videos of the Week
Traditional thinking on corruption goes like this: if you put good laws in place and enforce them well, then economic development increases and corruption falls. In reality, we have the equation backwards, says innovation researcher Efosa Ojomo. In this compelling talk, he offers new thinking on how we could potentially eliminate corruption worldwide by focusing on one thing: scarcity. “Societies don’t develop because they’ve reduced corruption,” he says. “They’re able to reduce corruption because they’ve developed.”
Podcast of the Week
Democracy’s College: Research and Leadership in Educational Equity, Justice, and Excellence
In this episode, Colvin T. Georges Jr. of OCCRL talks with Dr. William A. Smith about racial battle fatigue. Dr. Smith is a professor and the chair of the Department of Education, Culture & Society at the University of Utah.
Kate Szumanski still remembers the note her professor wrote at the top of an essay in her senior year: “This is a good argument … Why don’t you come visit me at office hours and we’ll talk about graduate school.”
