About the Book

This second edition offers strategies, tips, and guidance on how to promote equitable student growth across content areas. The essays in this book complement the work of school board members, administrators and community stakeholders in school districts with diverse student populations.
Authors offer both empirically-based and auto-ethnographic accounts about equity policy frameworks, school counseling, resource officers in urban schools, trauma-informed practices and bias disruptors. Each of the 12 essays provides templates for educators and administrators across age ranges and institution types. As demographics grow more diverse, school leaders will look for ideas to improve campus policy and practice. The contributors to this work deliver actionable steps across departments.
