Episode 4 of NCSI’s “General Soup” podcast focuses on a key responsibility and priority of state general supervision system — disrupting disproportionality or the over-identification of certain groups of students, particularly Black students, for special education services and/or disciplinary action. What are the limits of approaching disproportionality as solely a compliance issue rather than recognizing it as evidence of a need for full-scale systems transformation? How can states leverage their general supervision systems to promote equitable opportunities and outcomes for all students? Please join hosts Susan Hayes and Sara Doutre for a rich and important conversation about these questions and more with two national experts in the area of disproportionality and equity, David Lopez and John Jacobs.
