Verona Area School District’s incoming superintendent, Dr. Tremayne Clardy, recently co-authored an article published in Cognition and Instruction titled, “Inclusive Future Making: Building a Culturally Responsive Behavioral Support.” Clardy joined the primary writer, UW–Madison’s Aydin Bal, a professor in the School of Education’s Department of Rehabilitation Psychology and Special Education (RPSE), and UW–Madison RPSE alumni Kemal Afacan and Halil Ibrahim Cakir on the project.

Drawing on a one-and-half-year study at an urban middle school, the article presents an inclusive design process through which teachers, families, administrators, and community members — especially those from racially minoritized communities — designed a behavioral support system called “Learning Lab” that is responsive to diverse histories, perspectives, practices, and the goals of their school community.

According to Bal, the article “shows the possibilities of transforming marginalizing systems from the ground up, and collectively envisions schools as spaces of solidarity, emancipation, and innovation.”
