This episode builds from Kelisa Wing's recent blog post calling for educators to hold themselves accountable for dismantling racial oppression. There is unmet potential for educators to teach tolerance, ensure representation, and disrupt the system of oppression for our students and colleagues. Kelisa provides specific, actionable ways educators can make a difference in the lives of the students they serve.
