A2: Forget to intro myself on A1, Derrick Jackson Denton ISD. I think the biggest barrier to inclusion in education is implicit bias - it's important that we continue to work to break down stereotypes in the classroom in order to meet the needs of all students.

When looking at pictures, the first person we look for is someone who looks like ourselves. Representation matters. Imagine how students and families feel when your marketing materials don't reflect your students' reality.

A2: I think the biggest barrier to inclusion is that we think we are doing way better then we really are, and if you think you are doing well, you don’t try to improve.

A4: As Michele Norris mentioned, sometimes movies with themes around diversity and race provide a "way in" to discuss these topics. It is also important to set the tone of a "safe" space to discuss.

A4: Yes, ! We need to assist our students in creating spaces to have these conversations ... and then step back and let them go. As shared in our round table discussion - give them back their voice and let them take ownership.

A2: Lack of understanding. Lack of willingness to change from “the way we’ve always done things.” Mostly, falling prey to a political climate focused on what divides us rather than finding ways every day to bring our students, families, communities together.

We've also promoted our aspirations for equity thru storytelling our past: integration of our high schools in 1971 to create one high school, T.C. Williams, as told in the movie Remember the Titans. See our full Gold Medallion winning campaign:

An introvert’s struggle. “It’s hard for me to have a conversation about weather. It’s really hard to have a conversation about equity.” —

A3: Strategic plan guides the district so equity/inclusion/diversity needs to be listed as a core value/part of the mission. That requires leadership ensure employee get the training, resources and structure to understand diversity.
