how might school leadership/admin use such data you presented to inform their leadership practice for their school community? Teachers might be at a disadvantage in using such data to support their students while leadership might be better able to leverage resources, partnerships, etc.

As parents of private school kids, we’re benefiting in the ways you’re talking about. what can we do to work towards equity—is the answer to not take advantage of these privileges?

Can you resend that to Panelists and Attendees, so everyone can see it? :) Just reopened that
Jodi Cohen

One issue of why CPD complaints are not sustained disproportionately is that complaints can't be investigated if anonymous (law about to change that) and Black and Brown people are more likely not to give their names because of distrust.

As a financial advisor, I am working on strategies to expand access to financial systems and tools, specifically for black people and communities. This has to go beyond just reaching individuals to creating trustworthy spaces where people can access services, not be taken advantage of, and begin building generational wealth.
