Three successful superintendents share how to educate all students

 

The three Latina superintendents who coauthored this book go beyond discussing the issue of equity in education―they live it. These trailblazing women chronicle their childhoods, careers, and challenges and share their vision to transform schools into places of equity and excellence. Through the lens of cultural proficiency, their stories enhance readers’ understanding of:

 

  • Barriers to educational opportunity and equity
  • Conditions that help promote success for underserved students
  • Ways to leverage culture as an asset
  • Links between high-quality education for some and excellence for all learners

About the Author:

Carmella S. Franco is a State Trustee appointed by the California State Board of Education to oversee the academically failing Alisal Union Elementary School District in Monterey County.

Her thirty-eight years in public education include having served as Director of Personnel, Elementary and Middle School Principal, ESL Specialist and Title VII Director in diverse school district settings, all with high English Language Learner student populations. Carmella’s passion is in ensuring that students of color are provided with every opportunity to succeed, in particular, with access to higher education. She also has co-presented often on the topic of women in educational leadership roles, and currently directs the Association of California School Administrator’s Superintendents Academy in Whittier, California.

Review:

"This is a book I didn′t know I needed until I read it. But now that I have, I will read it again and again with my leadership team. The authors have provided some powerful lessons about transformative leadership through personal stories that are moving, compelling, and captivating." Author: Sarah Jerome, Superintendent Published On: 2011-02-25

"The authors serve as wonderful role models for young women of color, who will enjoy reading about where the authors come from and how far they have gone. This is an insightful story that will contribute to the development of more women leaders in our country." Author: Daniel Domenech, Executive Director Published On: 2011-02-25

"Through personal stories and vignettes, the authors share a variety of insights into how school equity has affected and shaped the lives of three successful female superintendents, and how equity issues continue to affect our students today. As a colleague and fellow female superintendent of color, I can relate to and see myself in so many of their stories. This is a wonderful must-read book for those interested in equity!"
