Three successful superintendents share how to educate all students

 

The three Latina superintendents who coauthored this book go beyond discussing the issue of equity in education—they live it. These trailblazing women chronicle their childhoods, careers, and challenges and share their vision to transform schools into places of equity and excellence. Through the lens of cultural proficiency, their stories enhance readers’ understanding of:

 

  • Barriers to educational opportunity and equity
  • Conditions that help promote success for underserved students
  • Ways to leverage culture as an asset
  • Links between high-quality education for some and excellence for all learners

In The Press

"Through personal stories and vignettes, the authors share a variety of insights into how school equity has affected and shaped the lives of three successful female superintendents, and how equity issues continue to affect our students today. As a colleague and fellow female superintendent of color, I can relate to and see myself in so many of their stories. This is a wonderful must-read book for those interested in equity!"
