 Hi All,

 I thought this might be of interest to some folks in the lab. There is a
possibility of signing an open letter by May 29 if you find the arguments
expressed compelling. The letter addresses systemic inequality and
whether/how it will be addressed in this particular policy forum.

   Dear Colleagues and Fellow Educational, Parent, and Community Leaders


 The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) is in the final stages
of updating the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC)
standards, and *the public comment period closes on the 29th of May*. These
highly influential policy standards shape the practice, professional
development, and evaluation of school leaders across the country.


 *We want you to know that in the current draft, none of the seven core
standards themselves make explicit reference to educational equity,
inequality, race, class, gender, ability, language, special status,
marginalization, or social justice*. You may access the seven draft
standards in a press release by the CCSSO here
<http://www.ccsso.org/News_and_Events/Press_Releases/Public_Comment_Sought_on_Revised_Draft_Standards_for_Education_Leaders_.html>
.


 This omission is dismaying since a previous draft of these standards
included specific language around educational equity and racial inequities.
The findings of research and the voices of practitioners are very important
for influencing the development of the language in the standards. We
believe it is critical that the educational research community, school
leaders, and local communities speak again on this issue.


 At this time, *we are inviting you to support an open letter* addressed to
the CCSSO, which is available at the following link:

Your signature in support of the letter will include your institution or
organization name, which is for identification purposes only and is not
intended to imply an endorsement or support from your institution. Your
name, should you choose to sign in support, will appear in an attachment to
the letter that we will present to the CCSSO Trustees and leadership team.  If
you do not wish to sign in support of the letter, please forward this email
to your colleagues and contact the CCSSO directly if you share the
perspective that equity and equitable schools are a critical part of
developing standards for future school leaders.


 Thank you for considering this request.


 Sincerely,
