Here’s the scoop for the week

Forest Lake Superintendent Steve Massey shares an article he authored on equity:

In providing the article, "A Real Look at Educational Equity," Steve wrote for the Forest Lake Times, he stated that, "I wrote this piece in order to bring clarity to what educational equity looks like for Forest Lake Area Schools and to work against equity being misinterpreted and redefined.”

I encourage you to read how he shared his ideas on equity with someone who did not believe in the concept of equity. Well done, Steve!
