Because you can’t improve schools without talking.

Mica Pollock created to offer tools and dialogue supports for educators, youth and families trying to create education communities where everyone is supported and valued.

Imagine schools where folks dismantle opportunity barriers, benefit from the rich diversity of all communities, and treat all people humanely.

That’s what antiracism and equity work are about. Let’s talk toward that.

Such efforts support and benefit us all.

Mica is Professor of Education Studies and Director of CREATE (the Center for Research on Educational Equity, Assessment, and Teaching Excellence) at the University of California, San Diego. 

Mica has spent decades working to create talk tools that help people work toward antiracism and equity in schools. She is constantly seeking tools and ideas that help improve supports to young people, and she wants to talk with you to support your work.
