The Staff Room Podcast with Chey and Pav Episode 92: Have we Bridged the Equity Gap During the Pandemic?

Podcasts

In Episode 92 of The Staffroom Podcast, Chey and Pav talk about bridging equity gaps in school communities over the past year and a half during the Covid-19 Pandemic. The past year has been a challenging one, and also has provided educators with many opportunities to bring students forward in terms of access to technology and providing specific professional development for teachers. Chey and Pav offer many insights with respect to their stance on this idea. What are some key takeaways from Episode 92? Don’t slow down – keep looking for inequities. Don’t take what Chey and Pav offer as the end of the conversation – keep the conversation going by reading more, and engaging in other conversations about bridging the equity gap. Also, let’s stop saying “we need to go back to normal.” The landscape has changed.
