Quote of the week
From a new book
“Engaged and Inspired Learners. Equitable schools see all students as capable and accomplished learners who are constantly building and reinforcing their identity and agency. Students are empowered to use their education to pursue new interests, skills, and aspirations, and the school provides support in the form of viable action plans and opportunities. In Chapter 5, we look at how students can learn to direct their own learning and identify what else they must learn to reach their dreams.”
“The Equity Taxonomy”
by Dominique Smith, Nancy E. Frey, Ian Pumpian and Douglas E. Fisher

In an honest talk filled with his signature illustrations, Sun shares how telling stories about feeling like an outsider helped him tap into an unexpected community and find a tiny sliver of light in the darkness.
