About the Book

"Elena Aguilar's franchise books focus on relevant issues that educators, educational coaches, and administrators face daily. Coaching is a vague and undefined practice, a practice which can vary from school site to site. Educational equity means that each child receives whatever they need to develop to their full academic and social potential. The combination of these topics--coaching and equity--presents an unmet need that educators must address: how do we teach, coach, and encourage students to reach their fullest potential, both in and out of the classroom, while maintaining equity in regard to social, cultural, and economic factors"--
