Practical information for school leaders on how to close the achievement gap is in short supply. This book contains practical tools and strategies that make intuitive sense to educators and are easy to apply in reducing inequities in schools. The authors offer a manageable set of indicators to highlight inequities and that can be used in flexible ways for approaching the unique circumstances of any school. Full of charts, graphs, tools, and support materials, readers will move from an understanding of why equity audits are imperative to an understanding of how to do them and how to narrow the teacher quality, programmatic, and achievement gaps in their schools.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A good first step for school leaders looking to address inequalities in their schools. I particularly like the authors' recognition that to conduct an equity audit is not enough-one needs to become an equity-oriented change agent." -- Tonya Gau Bartell, Assistant Professor
"Achieving equity in our schools is not something we have to do for NCLB; it is something we must do for our kids! This book frames this task, tells us who can make it happen, and shows us how to do it." -- Nic Cooper, Director of Secondary Student Services
"A myriad of ideas and suggestions that can be used on a small scale in a small school or department, or on a large scale throughout a district. The book is unique in my experience and makes a definite contribution. The chapter on developing teacher skills is the best and most useful account I've encountered in recent memory, and the entire premise of the book has the potential to raise the level of discourse on issues of equity in our schools, as well as what we can do to make schools better." -- Mary Johnstone, Principal
"The book offers many wonderful strategies and suggestions. It allows leaders to institute analysis and change in a very effective manner." -- Lawrence Kohn, Associate Professor
"Concise, coherent, thought provoking, inspiring, and a true call to action. The authors have set before us rich food for thought, dialogue, and action in very few pages of text!" -- Judith A. Rogers, Professional Learning Specialist
"An excellent book for training those seeking administrative certification. The material is well-documented, useful for improving teacher quality, and a good guidebook for providing insights to reducing bias and prejudice in all aspects of academia. Succinct, useful, adaptable, and practical." -- Sara E. Spruce, Professor of Education
