Advancing Humanity Episode 101: Equity + Inclusion in Education


Dr. Herbert Monroe is the Assistant Superintendent of Caroline County Public Schools and a member of the Virginia Advisory Committee on Culturally Relevant and Inclusive Education Practices.

Instead of using “At Risk”, Dr. Monroe describes students as “At Promise”

In addition to his educational experiences, he mentors others through the Power of the African and Latin Drumming. He plays in two bands and uses drum circles to engage his mentees in positive musical experiences. See website /Youtube

2. Where are the gaps in education around equity and inclusion?
3. What is your wish for children and families who participate in our education systems?
4. What do teachers need to be doing differently to better support our at risk students?
5. How do equity and inclusion play a role in our children’s mental health?
6. Is there a focus on equity and inclusion for staff, or are the initiatives only around student success?
