The Color of Education 2020 November 19, 2020
Panelists will address some of the important issues facing our children within the education system, the inequities and the biases that exist today. In addition, we will tackle why Black boys are more likely than any other group to be placed in Special Education classes.
Our panelists will share what they see as some of the major challenges facing Black children in schools such as: the lack of cultural competency, the disparities in suspension rates for Black children compared to White students, and how our recent turn to remote learning has failed Black children in urban areas. We will also discuss strategies parents can use to set their child up for success in school and what they can do to ensure that teachers are setting appropriate expectations for their children.
