IAS faculty member David Goldstein (along with UW Bothell School of Educational Studies faculty member Wayne Au) has been named to the Seattle Public Schools’ Ethnic Studies Task Force, whose goal is “to develop specific, multi-year recommendations for the Superintendent to ensure that all Seattle Public School students learn the perspectives of the different ethnicities that constitute our community and nation.” Dr. Kyle Kinoshita, an instructor in the Leadership Development for Educators (LEDE) program in the School of Educational Studies and the Chief of Curriculum, Assessment and Instruction for Seattle Public Schools, chairs the Task Force, which the District formed in response to interest expressed by Seattle Public Schools educators and the local community, including a January 2017 resolution by the Seattle King County NAACP. The Task Force’s report is due to the Board of Education in October.
