Equity in education

The fair and just learning environments (PI Practices M1 and M2) envisioned by Principled Innovation are those in which all students have equal opportunities to succeed. However, students—and communities—have different ideas of what “success” looks like. What is the role of the teacher when success means different things to different learners? Use this short 1-minute video by a Maryland teacher-of-the-year to spark a conversation about how fairness can shape the way teachers consider their role in the classroom.
