QUESTION:
What Can We Do to Create More Equitable Opportunities for All Children

Producing Students Who Are
Good at Learning and Good at Life

Dr. Michael Fullan

Dr. Michael Fullan is  the Global Leadership Director, New Pedagogies for Deep Learning, former Dean of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) of the University of Toronto, and a worldwide authority on educational reform with a mandate of helping to achieve the moral purpose of all children learning. Dr. Fullan has been deeply embedded in the work of California’s school and district systems to focus on equitable access, opportunity, and outcomes for all of our students.  

In this two-part talk, Dr. Fullan walks us through the new drivers of reform of whole system success, beginning with the connection that well-being has to learning. We revisit the work that he introduced around the right vs. wrong drivers of systems reform and systems coherence, both of which were pivotal in framing the work of California’s new accountability system and focus on a system-wide solution to supporting student success, ending with a reflection on the purpose of the education system today.

EDUCATING STUDENTS EQUITABLY
WHEN SCHOOLS REOPEN

(2 parts)

Dr. Pedro Noguera

Dr. Pedro Noguera is Dean of the Rossier School of Education at the University of Southern California. An educator and researcher, Dr. Noguera focuses on the role and responsibilities of schools to inquire, engage, and invest in issues of equity in education.

Please join us for a two-part talk Dr. Noguera’s gives on how we must keep focused on student equity as we prepare for the reopening of schools. He asks us two fundamental questions:

  1. What are the issues that your school or district must prepare to address as students return to school?
  2. Who are your allies and partners in addressing equity challenges?
