Good intentions are not enough—create a bold new leadership paradigm to achieve equity in opportunities and outcomes!

If you're serious about providing a level playing field for all, it is time to do more than identify and lament the reasons for educational disparities and why they persist. John Robert Browne II shows how Culturally Courageous Leadership by all school community stakeholders can help you achieve equitable learning opportunities and outcomes for all students. This practical guide:

Shows how to develop realistic, data-based plans for putting equity initiatives into action; Helps district and school administrators work with teacher, parent, student, and community leaders to advance equity and excellence; Provides concrete examples of what it takes to empower staff and stakeholders through collaborative leadership; Offers tips on how to navigate the politics when addressing the interface between identity, race, culture, poverty, primary language, and achievement

School-based examples, role-play activities, profiles of educators exemplifying leadership for equity, “make it personal” questions, facilitator notes, and diagnostic assessments are provided so you can engage your entire school or district community in equity transformation. If you are ready to take on the challenge of becoming an “equity warrior,” then Walking the Equity Talk will show you the path forward.

Identity, Teaching, and Learning

Identity, teaching, and learning

Our self-identity has a lot to do with how we are perceived and treated by both significant and nonsignificant others.

Our identity is the very core of who we are as human beings. From birth, we are subject to how we are thought about, treated, and cared for by the significant persons in our lives as well as by others in multiple environments. Our ideas about self are largely a reflection of others' ideas about us, good and bad or in between. Schools have an enormous influence on how we come to see ourselves, the hopes and dreams we acquire, and our achievement motivation.
