Excellence Through Equity is an inspiring look at how real-world educators are creating schools where all student are able to thrive. In these schools, educators understand that equity is not about treating all children the same. They are deeply committed to ensuring that each student receives what they individually need to develop their full potential – and succeed.

To help educators with what can at times be a difficult and challenging journey, Blankstein and Noguera frame the book with five guiding principles of Courageous Leadership:

  • Getting to your core
  • Making organisational meaning
  • Ensuring constancy and consistency of purpose
  • Facing the facts and your fears
  • Building sustainable relationships

They further emphasise that the practices are grounded in three important areas of research that are too often disregarded: (1) child development, (2) neuroscience and (3) environmental influences on child development and learning.

You’ll hear from Carol Corbett Burris, Michael Fullan, Marcus J. Newsome, Paul Reville, Susan Szachowicz and other bold practitioners and visionary thinkers who share compelling and actionable ideas, strategies and experiences for closing the achievement gap in your classrooms and school.

Ensuring that all students receive an education that cultivates their talents and potential is in all our common interest.
