Curtis Linton is a co-owner of The School Improvement Network where he is co-executive producer of The Video Journal of Education and TeachStream. He has spent the last 10 years documenting on video and in print the improvement efforts and best practices of the most successful schools and school systems across North America. Each year, he visits more than 100 classrooms and schools, capturing what they do to succeed with all students at the classroom, school, and system levels. Linton has written or produced dozens of award-winning video-based staff development programs. His areas of expertise include closing the achievement gap and improving minority student achievement, using data, leadership, effective staff development, brain research, differentiation, action research, and coaching. With the goal of delivering results-based professional development efficiently to large numbers of educators, he works with school systems to design comprehensive school improvement plans that integrate workshops, video, electronic media, and other resources. As a part of this, Linton conducts workshops on effective classroom practices. Linton also works extensively in the community, including serving on the Davis School District Equity Committee. Linton received his master’s degree in fine arts from the University of Southern California.Review:
"Equity 101 uses a common sense approach to a complex problem. In America, we too often associate rigor with hard work that causes failure, and this author brings to light the notion that rigor is really about equal achievement for all children. We must believe that all children have a right to succeed in our schools, and the stories and vignettes remind us this is possible." (Toni Jones, Superintendent 2013-03-06)
"This book provides the reader with a wealth of information related to equity and education. Written for 21st century educators, it is a powerful and valuable resource for those that want to challenge, engage, and facilitate the learning for all students." (Judy Brunner, Author, Consultant 2013-03-06)
"Creating, nurturing, and sustaining an educational culture where individual differences are affirmed, and instruction is continuously tailored based on these differences, is essential to enhancing student achievement. This book is your practical how-to guide." (David Freitas, Professor 2013-03-06)
"Curtis Linton’s personal story and experiences with his own children are powerful incentives to read this compelling book of information and strategies to improve educational experiences for schools and classrooms with significant cultural diversity. A good read! Well worth the time!" (Betty Porter Walls, Assistant Professor of Education 2013-03-06)
