Mary Grassa O’Neill, senior lecturer on education and faculty co-chair, Race, Equity, and Leadership in Schools, HGSE
As our nation and its schools become increasingly diverse, school leaders must maintain a focused commitment to ensuring equitable and excellent schools. Beverly Daniel Tatum will be joined by discussants Deborah Jewell-Sherman and Mary Grassa-O’Neill for a conversation on how the work of leading inclusive schools has changed in the past 35 years, and the skills required of leaders today to successfully transform schools and the experiences of all children. Conversation will include how to recognize and understand structures that perpetuate inequities in education, while also addressing assumptions and beliefs about how people learn.
This forum is held in conjunction with Race, Equity, and Leadership in Schools, a new Programs in Professional Education convening, celebrating the 35th anniversary of The Principals’ Center.
