Editorial Reviews


"A good first step for school leaders looking to address inequalities in their schools. I particularly like the authors’ recognition that to conduct an equity audit is not enough—one needs to become an equity-oriented change agent." (Tonya Gau Bartell, Assistant Professor 2009-01-16)

"Achieving equity in our schools is not something we have to do for NCLB; it is something we must do for our kids! This book frames this task, tells us who can make it happen, and shows us how to do it." (Nic Cooper, Director of Secondary Student Services 2009-01-16)

"A myriad of ideas and suggestions that can be used on a small scale in a small school or department, or on a large scale throughout a district. The book is unique in my experience and makes a definite contribution. The chapter on developing teacher skills is the best and most useful account I’ve encountered in recent memory, and the entire premise of the book has the potential to raise the level of discourse on issues of equity in our schools, as well as what we can do to make schools better." (Mary Johnstone, Principal 2009-01-16)

"The book offers many wonderful strategies and suggestions. It allows leaders to institute analysis and change in a very effective manner." (Lawrence Kohn, Associate Professor 2009-01-16)

"Concise, coherent, thought provoking, inspiring, and a true call to action. The authors have set before us rich food for thought, dialogue, and action in very few pages of text!" (Judith A. Rogers, Professional Learning Specialist 2009-01-16)

"An excellent book for training those seeking administrative certification. The material is well-documented, useful for improving teacher quality, and a good guidebook for providing insights to reducing bias and prejudice in all aspects of academia. Succinct, useful, adaptable, and practical." (Sara E. Spruce, Professor of Education 2009-01-16)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As an aspiring principal - I need all the tools available to help me with my current studies and when I am in office. This book helped explain what equity audits are and arrived in time for my power point presentation and paper. Great information in layman's terms as I am learning what it is to be an administrator.
