Race & Education | Creating Equity-Centered School Leadership

Tuesday, March 19 |  2 pm ET 

Effective school principals play a crucial role in shaping a positive school environment. Impactful leaders in schools contribute to the enhancement of the school climate, increased teacher satisfaction and retention, and positive outcomes for students. To make a lasting impact on a diverse student body, school leaders must commit to addressing structural barriers to success through an equity-based approach. Educational inequities persist across schools, with students of color encountering challenges such as higher suspension rates, racial discrimination, and systemic barriers hindering their success. Principals are pivotal in addressing these issues within schools, working towards eliminating the perpetuation of such inequities. The Hunt Institute and The Wallace Foundation invite key stakeholders and school leaders to engage in a conversation about the significance of equity-centered school leadership and how its implementation can transform our schools into better environments for all students.

Homeroom with Education Leaders | Shattering Glass Ceilings: Illuminating the Path to Gender Equity in Educational Leadership

Thursday, March 21 |  2 pm ET 

Women wield significant influence in shaping the lives of children, not just as caregivers but also as teachers. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, 77 percent of teachers are women. Furthermore, when evaluating district-level leadership, there is a pronounced gender disparity in leadership between men and women, with 87 percent of superintendents being male. This issue extends beyond gender equity and the challenges for women in leadership. It includes recognizing the inherent value of female leadership and its positive impact on enhancing student performance and empowering girls to lead. Join The Hunt Institute as we discuss the barriers hindering women’s advancement in education leadership as we seek to initiate a thoughtful examination of how the education landscape can intentionally carve a pathway to support more women leaders.

Race & Education | A Conversation on Stay and Prevail: Students of Color Don’t Need to Leave Their Communities to Succeed

Tuesday, April 16 |  2 pm ET 

Students of color from low-income backgrounds are often told they must leave their communities to find success. This ‘leave to succeed’ mindset poses a significant threat to students’ identities and prompts unsettling questions about whether marginalized communities are inherently inferior. Nancy Gutiérrez’s new book, Stay and Prevail: Students of Color Don’t Need to Leave Their Communities to Succeed explores how schools and districts can support student success while honoring students’ background, culture, and history. Join our research experts and The Hunt Institute for a conversation about why students of color leave their low-income communities to find success and how we can change the narrative on what defines success for low-income students.
