Civil Rights and Quality Education
Below are resources for participants in the “Civil Rights and Quality Education” session led by Dr. Bradley Scott, director of the IDRA South Central Collaborative for Equity. These resources are provided in the context of IDRA’s Quality School Action Framework, which guides communities and schools in identifying weak areas and strengthening public schools’ capacities to graduate and prepare all students for success. IDRA’s new book, Courage to Connect: A Quality Schools Action Framework™ shows how communities and schools can work together to be successful with all of their students. See the book’s web page for a table of contents, excerpt, quotes, related podcasts and other resources.
