As I continue to spend this month in deep learning mode (the habit this month here at Onward is be a learner), I want to share this TED Talk that was shared with me. Elena Aguilar’s cousin, Catalina Devandas Aguilar, is brilliant on the TED stage as she shares her talk Celebrating Disability as Part of Human Diversity.
I was so moved by her request: NOTHING ABOUT US, WITHOUT US. Please watch. As we continue with prioritizing equity in our schools, we need to listen. Listen to those with a varied ability. Show up as a learner.
