It is a responsibility of our education system to prepare students for the real world. The murder of George Floyd and the many Black lives lost before him have unequivocally demonstrated that today’s real world is plagued by systemic racism, oppression, and violence. The momentum fueling the Black Lives Matter movement has made it clear that the tools that students engage with should not simply prepare them for the real world. They need to engage with tools that teach and empower them to challenge, to think critically about, and to create sustainable change in their communities.
In this webinar, staff from ThinkCERCA will discuss how to initiate a shift in the classroom, school, or district and re-imagine what it means to amplify the student voice. This free webinar will take place at 1:00 p.m. (EDT) on July, 21, 2020. Registration is required.
