Gangone to Participate in Education Deans for Justice and Equity Meeting
This week, AACTE President/CEO Lynn M. Gangone will meet with deans from across the country at the Education Deans for Justice and Equity (EDJE) meeting hosted by AACTE member institution University of Colorado Boulder, August 8-9.
EDJE is a nationwide alliance of education deans that advances equity and justice in education by speaking and acting collectively and in solidarity with communities regarding policies, reform proposals, and public debates. Participants come from public and independent colleges of education around the country, most of which are AACTE member institutions.
Along with Gangone, special guests at this week’s meeting will include Marilyn Cochran-Smith (Boston College, MA), lead author of the recently released book Reclaiming Accountability in Teacher Education, and Kevin Welner (University of Colorado Boulder), director of the National Education Policy Center.
“I look forward to seeing our valued colleagues and to join them as they work to strategize on ways to lead our institutions to more comprehensively advance equity and justice,” Gangone said.
