In this episode, we explore how to end deficit based-educational systems that disproportionately harm minoritized students and move from what’s wrong to what’s strong. Dr. Kelsie Reed and Dr. Byron McClure join me to reframe deficit thinking and provide practical strategies to move toward strength-based, equitable schools. Key elements include identifying deficit thinking, humanizing data, building on strengths, and changing systems not individuals.
