What does centering students look like in action? What characteristics should a leader look for as evidence of equity and learning-centered practice?
In this excerpt from a recent webinar, Jose Rivera, assistant superintendent of Grandview School District, Wash., shares how he engages with issues of race in his district, especially as it relates to coaching programs.

Why knowing your district's racial make up is so critical
How to leverage the culture, language and beliefs that your students bring to the table in the classroom
What he means by "our students are volunteers" and three key questions he thinks educators should be asking them
