Title: " Educating to End Inequity "
This program addresses teachers efforts to level the educational and social playing fields for their students by examining public school reform and its relationship to social change. Educators who taught on the western frontier in the late 19th century and in the South during desegregation are spotlighted, along with contemporary instructors working with Native Americans in New Mexico and inner-city youth in New York. Visionaries including Joseph Abeyta of the Santa Fe Indian School, Ann Cook of Urban Academy and retired North Carolina school principal Kat Crosby consider cultural identity, teaching for diversity, performance-based assessment and other topics.
