In this episode, Shane Safir and Dr. Jamila Dugan, co-authors of Street Data: A Next-Generation Model for Equity, Pedagogy, and School Transformation, share insight from their best-selling book that teaches schools how to eradicate the fixation on big data like standardized test scores to measure equity and learning by rebuilding the system with classrooms, schools and systems built around students’ brilliance, cultural wealth, and intellectual potential. The book also provides an asset-based model to help educators look for what’s right in our students and communities instead of seeking what’s wrong as Safir and Dugan offer an actionable framework for school transformation.
