This April 2013 article in Principal Leadership, written by Rob Larson and Rhonda Barton, looks at lessons for school leaders on improving educational equity. It provides examples from OLN member districts and discusses use of OLN’s LEAD Tool™. One message is that equitable education begins with district and school leaders educating themselves about racial bias and recognizing their own beliefs and stereotypical thinking.
