Excellence Through Equity: Five Principles of Courageous Leadership to Guide Achievement for Every Student
School leaders know that the journey to equity can involve turmoil and controversy. This illuminating book demonstrates how in the most effective schools here and worldwide, equity is the most powerful means we have to lift all children to higher achievement. The authors challenge the “zero sum” myth head-on, arguing that equity is truly the path to excellence – for low AND high-achieving students, and our educational system overall. In this ground-breaking anthology, renowned authors Noguera and Blankstein pair leading-edge ideas from award-winning educational scholars, visionaries, and practitioners with powerful case studies from multicultural K-12 settings at all levels of the system who have pursued equity goals and closed instructional and achievement gaps.
