Deadline: The Learning Professional, June 2021, Article Submissions

February 15, 2021

In partnership with the Education Trust, this issue of The Learning Professional will focus on ways professional learning can equip teachers and leaders at all levels to take concrete steps that turn racial equity values into action. Articles should describe effective actions for equity and describe the evidence that they are making a difference. We aim to feature multiple entry points to the urgent work of building equity, and we encourage submissions from educators and thought leaders at all levels (e.g., classrooms and schools; districts and charter management organizations; states and provinces; technical assistance providers and scholars). Topics may include: hiring and support practices that nurture teachers and leaders of color; instructional strategies for centering the voices of students of color; redesigned structures for class scheduling, staffing, and student discipline to disrupt inequity; selecting and implementing rigorous and culturally-sustaining content and curriculum; the evolving roles of district chief equity officers; and courageous leadership for productive struggle.
