Writers Against Racism: Derrick Gay and Romeo Riley

On Thursday I will be interviewing Derrick Gay on issues of diversity and how we can best serve today’s students – all students.  We will focus on students with special needs since their voices are often the silent ones that are under the radar.

Gay is an educational consultant that partners with independent and international schools both in the United States and abroad. Domestically, he focuses on issues of inclusivity and equity, while working on broader educational issues and cultural competency abroad. With 15 years as a faculty member and senior administrator in independent schools and currently serving as an independent resource to help schools advance their inclusivity missions, Mr. Gay offers a timely and critical perspective on diversity in the private school world.

And tomorrow you will finally meet my mystery guy, Romeo Riley.
