Many educators want to support students of color who have not always been well-served in schools. Yet some parents and community members have misunderstood such efforts. Fortunately, many aspects of equity work are positive for everyone. Valuing identities of students of all backgrounds is central to this work. However it goes beyond food and holidays, the tip of the cultural iceberg. It involves learning in depth about students’ backgrounds, understanding our own, and inviting students to explore their histories and issues. Author/ educators Tonya Perry, Steve Zemelman, and Katy Smith address ways school leaders can promote this work, drawing on approaches in their new book, Teaching for Racial Equity.
