The past year has been a lot. Honestly, the past 400 years have been a lot. And I’m just tired. Being an educator is also tiring. My first year teaching aged me by at least 5 years. After a certain point, I didn’t want to do the math and know how much education aged me. I just knew that at some point, I became weary. And that I couldn’t keep feeling that way if I wanted to stay in this work.
Are you sick and tired of focusing on classroom management, staff vacancies, or hundreds of emails instead of focusing on instruction?
At Equitable Outcomes, we help school systems figure out how to create time by focusing on things that create access for Black children and eliminating things that don’t.
Are you sick and tired of wondering if you are complicit in racist outcomes for Black children?
Not with us! At Equitable Outcomes, we help system leaders gain clarity by developing a clear and concrete vision for what their specific school system needs in order to change instructional practices and create system-level access to grade level content for all Black children.
Are you sick and tired of worrying that you are going to burn out of the work you love doing before you’ve done what you came here to do?
Not today, Satan! One of our values is, “To own your worth, live your worth, and create space that protects your worth.” At Equitable Outcomes, we believe that what Black children don’t need is for you to become so overextended that it’s impossible for you to show up and advocate for them. That’s why we help you and your team intentionally create the conditions that will allow you to thrive and protect your capacity to sustain this work.
Do you want peace of mind knowing that the team that you lead is acting cohesively, on the same page, and focuses their actions on creating access to grade-level content?
In Equity Design School™,our signature partnership for school systems, we help school system leaders build buy-in by helping teams co-create the vision, design, and plan for creating access to grade-level content. This helps build authentic ownership in a decentralized way. (In other words, permission to stop worrying if anyone is undermining you!)
Do you want permission to act on what you know is right for Black children (and not what’s right for the system)?
We are so unapologetic about 1. Believing Knowing that all Black children can learn. 2. Believing Knowing that all Black Lives Matter. 3. In courageous honesty. Not only are these things embedded into everything that we do - it’s even on our website, that’s how seriously unapologetic we are about this. That means that when you bring Equitable Outcomes to your school system, we are Name It for you, so you don’t have to be the OG bad guy. Because reality is, it takes social capital to name these things as facts (which they are). So, save that social capital for changing your professional learning systems. Blame the “radical” ideas on Sable, (ex: “Well, Sable said teachers should unpack the test in advance, so….” - actual quote from actual client.) and let us be in your corner.
Equity is not hard. You, and all other decision makers, just need to choose it and the appropriate actions will follow. You’ve chosen equity. It’s your life’s work. But the rest of your school system is not ready yet… so you’re in this agonizing window waiting for them to catch up. You wait. And the Black children in your school system wait right alongside you.
Now, are you sick and tired of waiting for equitable outcomes for Black children?
And are you ready to start creating access for Black children across your entire school system today?
