Tending the Fire
City, Elizabeth A.; Dolly, Danique A.
Educational Leadership, v74 n8 p38-41 May 2017
Part of being an effective school leader is helping staff and students deal with situations related to inequity and race--helping the fire of emotion that accompanies such issues energize your school rather than becoming a wildfire. Danique Dolly faced this challenge as principal of Baltimore's City Neighbors High School during the time riots erupted in response to Freddie Gray, Jr.'s death in police custody. Dolly and City describe actions a leader can take to build his or her capacity to lead for equity and to launch productive discussion or action around race and equity issues.
