School-Wide Read

Every year, the Pitt School of Education hosts a School-wide Read. The purpose is to bring together the entire school community — students, faculty, and staff — for the study and discussion of important topics in education. The engagement supports our school's mission, which is to ignite learning and to work for equity and justice in education.


About the Book

The book is We Want to Do More than Survive by Bettina Love. Her book brings issues of equity and justice into a new, powerful, and profound light by positioning them within an abolitionist teaching lens. Bettina Love is an alumna of the School of Education.
