Building an Equity-Centered Principal Pipeline
In an effort to build an equity-centered principal pipeline, the Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling is a partner recipient of an $8.2 million, five-year grant from the Wallace Foundation. Partners include Portland Public Schools, Portland State University, the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission, the Oregon Educator Advancement Council, and local community organizations.
“The graduate school’s primary focus in the partnership will be collaborative design of educational leadership programming to prepare aspiring leaders of color as leaders for racial equity within the Portland Public School District,” says Mollie Galloway, chair of the graduate school’s Department of Educational Leadership and lead L&C contributor on the grant. “We are committed to working collectively to support leaders to transform school cultures and curriculum to be culturally affirming.”
