SDP Convening 2017 has ended

Communities around the world are embracing the philosophy of "open" to crowdsource knowledge and resources to fuel solutions to intractable problems. The 2017 SDP Convening will be about sharing data tools, research, ideas, and insights in order to make our own collective work better for kids.

Learn about the central importance of educational initiatives that explicitly promote racial justice.

Akisha Jones, Strategic Data Project Fellow at Guilford County Schools, created a predictive model that determined the relationship between teacher race and disproportionate discipline referrals for Black students. Ryan Pfleger, Manager of Data Analysis at Newark Public Schools, created a flexible rubric that supports culturally sustaining pedagogy.

In this session, the findings from these two research projects will initiate an open conversation about racial inequities in schools through the lens of racial and cultural mismatches between students, teachers and curriculum.
