Shifting Power is Equity Work ft. Dr Ann Ishimaru

By Nancy Angevine-Sands

Nancy Angevine-Sands is a passionate advocate for deeper engagement in our schools. It’s much more than Parent Engagement. It’s about engaging the entire family! And it’s about Nancy’s ongoing exploration of “Why Family Engagement Matters.”

In this second episode, Dr. Ann Ishimaru discusses the effect of our traditional, outdated education system on our racialized students and families. She challenges all of us to imagine a new system, co-designed by school and home, where we might all learn and unlearn. Dr. Ishimaru’s book, “Just Schools; Building Equitable Collaborations with Families and Communities” is available through the University of Toronto Press, The Teachers College Press in the USA and Amazon everywhere.
