[EDEQUITY] Raising & Educating Boys a comment

If appropriate, I would like to encourage participation in the Raising and
Educating Boys course. As someone who took the pilot course, I have to say
can not imagine a better use of my time. I am the Title IX/Equity
Coordinator for a small school district and have dedicated much of my small
equity "budget" to enroll three other staff members in the current course
because I cannot think of a better way to spend the limited resources I
to promote equity in my school district.

The EDEQUITY list provides a lot of discourse and dialog regarding girls,
school and equity? and this is appropriate. But much of girls experiences
school and in the world are shaped by the men and boys around them.
Facilitating changes that help boys thrive in school, and which broaden our
concepts of masculinity, benefit girls directly and equity in general.
EDC/GDI as a source of distance learning is particularly important to us in
rural areas and in areas which do not offer other opportunities. I am not
associated with either the course or EDC/GDI but the resources and online
courses I have taken through them were crucial to my personal and
professional development, and I cannot help but hope for their long term
survival as a provider of such services. I would be happy to answer any
questions about my personal experiences with the boys course via my private
