Climbing Out of Equity Traps and Tropes: Introduction to Street Data
Many of our district and school equity efforts focus on oversimplified quick fixes and implementation of off-the-shelf solutions. While we may feel a sense of urgency to address deep-rooted equity issues, our attempts are often thwarted by landmines that can be identified and removed through strategic analysis and creative action. In this session, Dr. Dugan extends the conversation around radical dreaming by laying out common equity traps and tropes that can undermine our well-intentioned efforts to transform education. Through storytelling and real-world examples, we explore why it is so hard to move equity work forward while beginning to find the courage to move toward Street Data, a next-generation model for school transformation, and unhinge ourselves from a legacy of “implementation” over imagination.
