Avoiding Racial Equity Detours by Paul Gorski

Gorski discusses four common “detours” schools take avoiding the changes necessary in achieving genuine equity.  He follows that discussion with five equity literacy principles that can help schools avoid equity detours and maximize the impact of equity efforts.

He notes, “In too many schools, the pace of equity progress prioritizes the comfort and interests of people who have the least interest in that progress. Professional development in these schools appears to accommodate the feelings and fears of white educators in “difficult” conversations about race rather than to advance equity for students of color.”  To read the complete article, click here.
