The equity mission of urban school districts — to provide an excellent education to all students — is more difficult than ever to achieve. This Askwith Forum examines the social responsibility superintendents bear in leading their districts in educating underserved students. How can these leaders move their districts beyond providing “equity of access” to achieve “equity of outcomes” with students’ more advantaged peers? Our panel of urban superintendents shares their unique perspectives on this work with Charles Ogletree, and Robert Peterkin closes the evening by examining the implications for future leadership practice.
This forum is being held in conjunction with the Urban Superintendents Program convening in celebration of the USP program, which began 25 years ago.
Part of HGSE's Fulfilling the Promise of Diversity community conversation.
