Brief
 
A key step in advancing educational equity is the critical examination of policies that shape students' learning experiences. Listen in as a team uses the following four critical questions to examine policy in their district. 
  • What is the intent behind this policy?
  • What social constructions does this policy embrace?
  • Who benefits and who does not?
  • What actions will redress the inequities we see in our policy?
This podcast pairs with our Equity by Design brief, Engaging School Communities in Critical Reflection on Policy.
