Principals need to focus on race . . .
. . . and racism, instead of equity, according to the US Department of Education. One of the points raised in a webinar hosted by the U.S. Department of Education about creating safe, inclusive and supportive schools was that race and racism need to be addressed specifically.
Joseph Bishop, executive director at UCLA’s Center for the Transformation of Schools, said in a presentation on student supports Wednesday that principals and teachers need to "accept responsibility" for inequitable outcomes for students.
Bishop said during his presentation for the event that looked at the results of California’s implementation of multi-tiered support systems in schools that principals need to focus on race instead of just talk about equity.
