Increasing Equity in the Classroom with Bonnie Davis


Bonnie M. Davis, educational expert and author on the topic of equity, discusses how Common Core Standards can help increase equity in the classroom because they provide clear instructional focus. Learning targets and good curriculum design are critical, she says, in building an equitable classroom.

Bonnie Davis expresses her goals for her upcoming series of equity-related books. Teachers must look inward to better understand their own biases and assumptions, she says; only then can they strive to provide truly equitable education for their students. She and Curtis Linton discuss the significant impact of classroom culture and classroom practice on equity and student success.
