Pittsburgh Public’s Executive Director Of Equity Shares Her Plan For Systemic Change
Just last month, Angela Allie joined Pittsburgh Public Schools as the Executive Director of Equity. A PPS graduate herself, Allie said she always knew she'd return to the district where she started her education.
The Pittsburgh native formerly taught English at Oliver High School in the North Side and served most recently as principal of Propel’s Andrew Street High School in Munhall.
She said her focus has always been education justice for traditionally under-served students.
“It’s something that was very evident even as I was growing up," she said. "And it’s something that became even more evident when I started teaching. And at that point I would argue that it would be quite impossible to continue to do work in urban education without thinking about equity and disparities and disadvantage on a daily basis."
