Throughout Metro-Boston, as well as nationally, the reality that local schools, K-12 and colleges alike, have been failing students through oppressive policies is overwhelmingly obvious. This 5-week course is designed to support educators, teachers, parents, administrators, para-professionals, after-school staff, and related service providers, to understanding the systems at play enforcing racism from interal bias to ideology.

The course will support the construction of strategy and action plans that participants will bring into the classroom and beyond, as well as direct skill building in how to organize their peers in the schools and enable them to show up for their students and their communities.

(5 Mondays) 6/19 through 7/17 (6:30 – 8:30 pm)
