Pursuing Educational Justice Speaker Series: Dr. Jeff Duncan-Andrade
February 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EST
Join in the kickoff event of the Pursuing Educational Justice Series, sponsored and facilitated by the Equity Outreach Initiatives.
Equality or Equity: Which One Will We Feed?
Duncan-Andrade has taught and researched effective teaching practices in schools around the world to provide insights to educators and school leaders into effective systems change, program building and daily educational practices.
This discussion equips leaders and educators to leverage research-based critiques of up-by-your-bootstraps theories of individualized success being pedaled to schools. In their place, it offers concrete, time-honored, research-based strategies that foreground relationships, relevance, and responsibility as essential ingredients to fundamentally altering the business-as-usual approach that continues to fail so many of our young people.
Free and open to the public.
