"COVID Climb" rather than "COVID slide"
Ana Delgado, she/her/ella
01:10:28
I would rather call "the achievement gap" The Equity Debt....it is a debt that students of color have had to endure based on systemic inequities.
Dr. Jaime Aquino, SVP, Discovery Education
01:11:18
Any questions for our panelists?
Che Abdullah
01:11:39
I think the responsiveness of the Education sector to this pandemic has been phenomenal, yet that success is never a part of the discussion. My question is two-fold. When does that resource stop being an afterthought vs. a supported driver of societal growth? Followed by does Education need new PR?
Moneka McPherson Lyons
01:12:58
From an educator perspective: How are you all as superintendents preparing your teachers and administrators and staff from a trauma-informed, SEL to move forward in resilience in their practice as educators?
Ana Delgado, she/her/ella
01:16:34
Question for panelist: What is the vision of your re-imagined classroom/schools? Or what specific policies around assessment, curriculum and school discipline do you envision that would be a step in the right direction toward a less White Supremacy Culture dominate school?
Tarawhona Bellevue
01:17:59
There is a culture of white supremacy that is real in our education system. There is great work to be done to unpack this culture regardless of the color of ones skin. Where does a district begin to unpack old and tattered suitcase of white supremacy?
Dr. Jaime Aquino, SVP, Discovery Education
01:27:19
As leaders of color, affinity groups are what help us survive!
Dr. Jaime Aquino, SVP, Discovery Education

I find it difficult to be a principal in a school and district in which I have that passion Dr. Stone has but the beliefs of many people in the district are very different from mine. The district is trying to bring that equity into our schools but is very hard to do when not every body truly has those beliefs. How do I do the work I know is right when not everybody has the same beliefs I do? I started my career working in Boston and have always worked in inner-city schools where I, a white woman, was the minority. My colleagues always had the same passion and beliefs as I do. I moved to this district in NC 5 years ago and it is not easy. It is very difficult to get buy-in to the equity piece of what we are doing.
Laura DuPont
01:34:48
Are any of you bringing students into the discussions and decisions around equity?

Current conversation in a 4th grade bilingual classroom– Pandemic precautions (although necessary), have prevented students from establishing friendships outside of the classroom where peers from other ethnicities and cultures are found.
Lillian Santiago
01:40:34
My class is explaining to me how they wish they had more opportunities to foster friendships outside of the bilingual program. They believe this would contribute to a solution.

I would even push back on the idea of gifted and talented...why aren't all of the instructional ideas and plans for "Gifted and Talented" just available to all students. Because all students can learn at high levels. Break down those label barriers
