Corwin’s “Deep Equity” program appears to have been first promoted by the Arizona School Board Association (ASBA) in 2017. At the time, Dr. Adama Sallu, participated in the ASBA event as an “Equity Expert.” One year later, Sallu was hired as the Director of Equity and Inclusion for Chandler Unified.... Jose Borrajero, founder of the Arizona People’s Lobbyist, a legislative watchdog group asked, “Why do we have to spend so many dollars 'implementing culturally responsive teaching practices?' What ever happened to the concept that schools should teach material that will enable students to learn what they need to become productive members of society, instead of engaging in social engineering? It is obvious that Deep Equity, instead of promoting equal opportunities for all, is seeking equality of outcome, which goes contrary to human nature.”
