April 7, 2017—Yesterday, members from the New York City Leadership Academy (NYCLA) attended the Principals meeting and presented their new pilot program called Equity Sims. Equity Sims is an interactive video-based simulation that is meant to engage educational leaders in reflection and decisions. These videos are based on real-life scenarios around equity in schools. Principals were divided into two groups to test out the two new simulations—one dealing with creating an inclusive school climate, and the other with issues related to low expectations at a struggling middle school.
