Dr. Lawson Clark delivers keynote lecture at the Equity Summit: Reclaiming Equitable Spaces in K–12 Education in Pennsylvania and Beyond, held on October 16, 2018 at Lebanon Valley College in Pennsylvania.
The Institute for Educational Governance and Leadership’s Equity Summit 2018 is an opportunity for stakeholders from across the Commonwealth to engage in meaningful discussions, workshops, and critical organizing activities that highlight the importance of equity in the context of participants’ school districts. The summit has significant implications for Pennsylvania K–12 education, and provides a place to gather communally to address issues of (in)equity, and to share best practices.
The Equity Summit will include keynotes and sessions that address issues and barriers—specific to Pennsylvania—that affect opportunities for our students to learn. These issues and barriers include educator equity, social-emotional learning, community and family engagement, and more. This summit will also aid districts and school leaders in developing culturally relevant equity-focused plans and programs.
