Newton Public Schools
Henry Turner has nearly 15 years of experience as a high school administrator. As a principal, he is most proud of the work at both high schools to empower students to fight hate and bigotry while strengthening their school community. Since that event, the schools has been determined to fight racism and all forms of hate in the school. This work has led to developing antiracist teaching practices, incorporating culturally responsive instructional practices, and changing structures and systems in the school to address systemic racism. He speaks nationally and locally sharing his experience speaking about race in schools, technology in education, and creating change to narrow racial and economic opportunity gaps. He also advises school districts and educators in this work.
