Today is Pi Day (3.14), so in celebration of all things circular, we're posting an essay by SEED leader Beverly Bennett-Roberts about SEED's "circle talk," or "Serial Testimony." She explains how circle talk helped her lead her SEED group of educators — Black and White, and of different backgrounds and political affiliations — in a discussion of race and politics where they could find common ground.
Thanks to the 30 principals, division heads, and other public and independent school administrators who joined SEED for its first Administrators' Institute this past weekend at Wellesley College. We are inspired by your energy, ideas, and willingness to do the personal and professional work to make your schools ever more inclusive. We appreciate your willingness to spend time with us thinking about the future of SEED!
This week, in our series of 20 questions that SEED Founder Peggy McIntosh answered about SEED for the Wellesley Centers for Women's Research & Action Report, she talks about how teachers can create change even within the limitations of set curricula and booklists.
