Equity in Education Requires Changing Narratives, Sharing Power
By Phil Haslanger
If you are going to have a conversation with Shahanna McKinney-Baldon about student achievement, you will learn quickly that simple words and simple answers will not get our schools very far in helping students achieve their highest potential.
McKinney-Baldon is no stranger to these conversations. She is currently the director of professional learning for the Minority Student Achievement Network (MSAN) at the UW Wisconsin Center for Education Research.
She brings to that a background experience as a classroom teacher for 15 years in the Milwaukee Public Schools and administrative positions in a range of educational settings, including serving as chief diversity officer and director of family and community engagement for the Madison Metropolitan School District.
