The Justice for Bias Framework in Action: A Case Study of Implicit Bias Impact Reduction

Thu, April 8, 3:00 to 4:00pm EDT (3:00 to 4:00pm EDT), SIG Sessions, SIG-Leadership for Social Justice Roundtable Sessions


The Justice for Bias Framework contextualizes categories of evidence-based strategies for reducing implicit bias in schools (decision-making supports, information building, mindfulness, and intergroup contact) as they intersect with practices central to transformative social justice (meaningful relationships, holistic flexibility, and equity-focused morality) in a manner that allows school professionals to customize a bias-minimalizing plan for increasing school equity. This case study systemically evaluates the framework in one New England, mid-sized, elementary school during the first half of the 2020-2021 school year using a mixed methods approach. Findings will be detailed in the final manuscript and summarized in the abstract.
