  • Kaufman, M. (1997). A professional development stance for equity. SSI Perspectives, 2 (3), 4-5.

Kaufman describes a professional development process that assists teachers in developing successful instructional strategies by using equity as a framing tool for decision making. Teachers are able to improve the educational outcomes for all students by creating a framework around which to initiate change. Teachers learned to approach change using the following elements: (1) a stance of critique and inquiry; (2) data-driven decision-making; (3) investigation of best practices, including instruction, curriculum, and materials; and (4) teacher leadership development. It is a means of eliminating the fragmentation that typically accompanies the implementation of reform.
