Back to Excellence Through Equity: Five Principles of Courageous Leadership to Guide Achievement for Every Student
Excellence Through Equity looks at how real-world educators are creating schools where all students are able to thrive. In these high-performing schools, educators understand that equity is not about treating all children the same. Rather, equity is about ensuring that each student receives what he or she individually needs to develop their full potential. Authors Alan M. Blankstein and Pedro Noguera with Lorena Kelly explore the five guiding principles of Courageous Leadership which include:
- Getting to your core
- Making organizational meaning
- Ensuring constancy and consistency of purpose
- Facing the facts and your fears
- Building sustainable relationships
Discover how it’s possible to have every child, in every classroom, reach their full potential.
"Letting go of a system of winners and losers in favor of what is proposed in this book is a courageous leap forward that we all must take together. Let this bold, practical book be a guide; and may you travel into this new exciting vista, in which every child can succeed."
—Archbishop Desmond Tutu
