Sonja Santelises, CEO of the Baltimore City School District, spoke recently at the Winter Standards Institute. During her keynote, which is a must watch, she speaks to the importance of access for all students to the core standards which she refers to as tools of power. Sonja stresses that equity is about bridging the disconnect in our work, how we link our work with standards to long-term livelihood for students. These are deep conversations that should happen I’m all communities, especially for our students of color and those living in poverty.
