Teacher and Student Leadership for Racial and Social Justice:
Second Annual Education Dialogue
Monday, March 7, 2016, 4:30-7:30 pm
At the MA High Performance Green Computing Center, 100 Bigelow Street, Holyoke
Please join us for the second annual Education Dialogue focused on equity, Teacher and Student Leadership for Racial and Social Justice. Register here!
This theme emerged directly from last year’s dialogue, What can we do locally about equity in our schools? Participants raised questions about what teachers and students can do and are doing beyond the classroom in community, school, and political arenas to effect institutional change toward educational equity. We invite students, pre-service teachers, teachers, administrators, and teacher educators from across the western Massachusetts region to participate in an evening of discussion and action planning on this topic.
Our guest commentators for the dialogue will be Sonia Nieto, Professor Emerita of Language, Literacy, and Culture, College of Education, University of Massachusetts Amherst, author of Affirming Diversity: The Sociopolitical Context of Multicultural Education, and Mark Warren, Associate Professor, Department of Public Policy and Public Affairs, McCormack Graduate School, University of Massachusetts Boston, author of A Match on Dry Grass: Community Organizing as a Catalyst for School Reform. We are honored to welcome them and we look forward to welcoming you!
