In Building Equity, Dominique Smith, Nancy Frey, Ian Pumpian, and Douglas Fisher, colleagues at San Diego’s innovative Health Sciences High & Middle College, introduce the School Equity Taxonomy, a new model to clarify the structural and interpersonal components of an equitable and excellent schooling experience, and the School Equity Audit, a survey-based tool to help school and teacher leaders uncover equity-related issues. Built on the authors’ own experiences and those of hundreds of educators throughout the United States, this book is filled with examples of policy initiatives and practices that support critical standards of equity and high-quality, inclusive learning experiences.
The teenage years are unique, and today’s teens face new challenges as well as opportunities. The May 2019 issue of Educational Leadership looks at what teens need most in terms of both academic and social supports, highlighting how schools can work smarter to keep middle and high school students healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
