Happy Soul Food Friday!

This week:

The Difference Between Equality and Equity:

Support Education: Back to the Future with the Brave New Library that is more about “connections” than “collections”…

Speaking of Equity, Access and Connectivity, Schoolkids Don’t Just Need iPads. They Need Data Plans!

Who Are YOU? Who Who? This might surprise you…

The Difference Between Equality and Equity:

Education must be about equity and access, and the Education Synergy Alliance is working to provide both!

A recent trip up north for members of the ESA team was illuminating.  San Francisco Unified elevates these principles in every session. They talk about it explicitly, measure it, and hold themselves accountable for it both in internal planning, and in frequent dialogs with the public. This is an image they are using across the district to foster dialog about equity:
