#109 - School leadership in today’s climate w/ UCLA’s Dr. Tonikiaa Orange‪!‬ All of the Above Podcast

    • Education

Being a school administrator has never been easy, but today’s education climate has made the work of many school leaders downright unsustainable. With ongoing narratives of so-called learning loss, a return to test-centered teaching, political shenanigans at local school boards, and the apparent deprioritizing of culturally responsive teaching and SEL, how can principals sustain themselves and do right by their students and staff? This week we’re joined by Dr. Tonikiaa Orange, the Director of the Principal leadership Institute as well as the Culture and Equity Project at UCLA Center X!! She helps us examine the role of school leaders in today’s challenging climate. But first, Jeff and Manuel take a look at recent headlines in education including a nationwide ban on cell phones in UK schools and an ongoing controversy surrounding the Scholastic Book Fair.
