Education can be transformed if we eradicate our fixation on big data like standardized test scores as the supreme measure of equity and learning. Instead of focusing on “filling” academic gaps, we must re-envision the system from the ground up—with classrooms, schools and systems built around students’ brilliance, cultural wealth, and intellective capacity. This call to action has never been more timely. Street data is the qualitative and experiential data that emerges at eye level and on higher frequencies when we train our brains to discern it. Street data is asset based, building on culturally responsive education by focusing on what’s right in our students, schools, and communities instead of seeking out what’s wrong. Street data reminds us that what is measurable is not the same as what is valuable and that data can be humanizing, liberatory and healing.

Many of our schools’ equity efforts focus on oversimplified quick fixes and implementation of off-the-shelf solutions. While we may feel a sense of urgency to address deep-rooted equity issues, our attempts are often thwarted by landmines that can be identified and removed through strategic analysis and creative action. This session offers educators the opportunity to examine some of the most common traps and tropes while finding the courage and agency to unhinge ourselves from a legacy of “implementation” over imagination.

By breaking down street data fundamentals: what it is, how to gather it, and how it can complement other forms of data to guide a school or district’s equity journey, authors Shane Safir and Dr. Jamila Dugan offer an actionable framework for school transformation. Join us for this dynamic 3-hour workshop as Shane and Jamila lay out their transformational model and help you shift your focus from satellite-level data to real-time, on-the-ground stories, experiences, and artifacts.


Participants will:

  • Engage in a humanizing experience to reflect on the past year and dream ahead
  • Feel inspired to reimagine how we teach and lead for equity in the coming year
  • Begin to shift from a Western-centered epistemology to more holistic, culturally sustaining ways of knowing
  • Identify potential traps and tropes that can subvert our visions for equity
  • Prepare to gather street data and design solutions in partnership with students and adults at the margins


  • Be sure to pre-purchase and bring your copy of Street Data
  • The book is NOT included in the course pricing


  • Teachers!!!
  • New and experienced coaches, managers, and mentors
  • Leaders who are ready to challenge their thinking and ways of leading
  • Educators of all positions who work in public, charter, and private schools


Shane Safir has worked at every level of the education system, from the classroom to the boardroom, for 25 years. In 2003, after teaching in San Francisco and Oakland and organizing in the community to launch a new school, Safir became the founding principal of June Jordan School for Equity (JJSE), an innovative national model identified by leading scholar Linda Darling-Hammond as having “beaten the odds in supporting the success of low-income students of color.” Since 2008, Safir has provided equity-centered leadership coaching, strategic planning, and professional learning support for schools, districts, and organizations across the U.S., Canada, and beyond. She facilitates workshops on creating brave spaces for equity, listening leadership, becoming a warm demander, and Street Data among other content. She is the author of The Listening Leader: Creating the Conditions for Equitable School Transformation (Jossey-Bass: 2017).

Dr. Jamila Dugan is a leadership coach, learning facilitator, and researcher. She began her career as a teacher in Washington D.C., successfully supporting her school to implement an International Baccalaureate program. After being nominated for Teacher of the Year, she later served as a coach for new teachers and a director of learning and leadership development for teachers in Oakland, California. As a school administrator, Jamila championed equity-centered student services, parent empowerment, and the development of the first Mandarin immersion middle school in Oakland, California. She currently serves as a leadership development coach in urban areas. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Fresno State University, a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from George Mason University, and a doctorate in Education Leadership for Equity from University of California, Berkeley.
