Welcome to the companion website for Principal Leadership for Racial Equity: A Field Guide for Developing Race Consciousness. Talking to staff about race, addressing biased behavior, calling for effective and racially conscious instruction, and revamping discipline policies takes courage and resilience. Our goal is that the research-based material and diverse voices from the field we share in this book will inspire that courage in you.
The fact that you have chosen this book proves that you believe, as we do, and as research supports, that principals can be the force for change that eliminate teaching gaps. Principals are positioned to transform schools mired in outdated, biased practices into learning environments that glow with high expectations for every student, strong relationships between teachers and students, an embrace of student voices and cultures, and a student-centered commitment to high achievement for every learner.
