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 overwhelming. This 5-week course is designed to support educators in understanding the systems at play enforcing racism from interal bias to ideology. The course will support the construction of strategy and action planning that participants will bring into the classroom and beyond.

Between the BPS Walkout rejecting the budget cuts to student lead protests raising the profile of racial disparities through social media campaigns including #BeingBlackAtBostonLatin, it is clear that students have had it with the imposition of rhetoric instead of remedies.

To support educators and administrators response to the student call for change, these sessions will provide the means for teachers, parents, administrators, para-professionals, after-school staff, and related service providers who work in various levels of youth engagement to connect and gain skills that will enable them to show up for their communities.

(5 Mondays) 4/10 through 5/8 (6:30 – 8:30 pm) Event location in close distance to the Harvard Square T-Stop.
