Sun, April 24, 2:30 to 4:00pm PDT (3:30 to 5:00pm MDT), Manchester Grand Hyatt, Floor: 3rd Level, Seaport Tower, Golden Hill B

Session Type: Symposium

Abstract

Education policy and policy making is shaped through the activities of a complex network of educators, educational leaders, researchers, community members, as well as government and non-government officials and organizations. Educational researchers can provide an evidence-based starting place for discussions about school improvement with the complex network of stakeholders engaged in policy development and implementation, but they must be more intentionally and systematically thoughtful about the connections of their work to policy and policy making. This symposium provides a forum for approaches and discussion around framing implications, structuring community advocacy as well as the dissemination of research findings within editorials and blogs.

Fri, April 22, 11:30am to 1:00pm PDT (12:30 to 2:00pm MDT), Manchester Grand Hyatt, Floor: 3rd Level, Harbor Tower, Mission Beach B

Session Type: Symposium

Abstract

This symposium aims to capitalize on the lived experiences of diverse voices in the field to understand how leaders can truly build inclusive and equitable spaces in the 21st century. The six papers and discussant will address how the lived experiences of the historically marginalized can help inform educators how to lead change in the post-Covid era. The historic nature of colliding pandemics in 2020 has heightened the awareness of various inequities that have been perpetrated by school systems. As leaders in various sectors, the authors who represent religious, racial, and ethnic diversity share a path forward in their stories. The audience, discussant, and authors will learn from each other how to devise a sustainable path forward.
