SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) April 04, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announces that Glenn Singleton, president of Pacific Educational Group, will speak at the School Improvement Innovation Summit 2013 on courageous conversations about race to empower systematic reform within schools and systems.
“We are very pleased to be having Glenn Singleton join us for the School Improvement Innovation Summit this year,” said Chet Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “Creating an environment where all students and educators can thrive is a struggle for schools across the nation, yet it is fundamental to making every teacher effective and every student college and career ready. Summit attendees who participate in Mr. Singleton’s presentation will gain valuable insights on how to bridge these difficulties in their own schools and systems to create an environment where all educators and students can perform at their best.”
Mr. Singleton’s presentation will focus on courageous conversations about race to help educators uncover and unwrap the racialized traditions, practices and beliefs that can hold certain groups of students down while maintaining the success of others. School Improvement Innovation Summit attendees will learn what to do with marginalized student groups by fundamentally re-engineering the systematic beliefs, understandings and practices of educators so that every student can equitably succeed.
The School Improvement Innovation Summit 2013 will be held at the Little America Hotel in Salt Lake City, July 8-9.
