What Educators are saying
As an administrator in MPS, I see great potential value in the proposed diversity, engagement and inclusion modules. I think that they could provide valuable shared learning for building level equity teams. They could also be used to create more district level conversations if used across multiple sites. Schools are often committed to improving racial equity and inclusion at their sites, but at times don't know where to begin making changes. This feels like it could be a tangible tool for that work.
