WEBINAR: Students of Color and the
Fight for Equal Opportunity in Our Schools
Thursday, Feb. 26 at 2 PM Eastern
In early February, The Schott Foundation for Public Education and the African American Policy Forum (AAPF) both released important new reports highlighting how our nation's public schools can and must do better for young men and women of color.
On Feb. 26 at 2 PM Eastern, Schott and AAPF will host a webinar about the two reports and what they mean for the fight for racial and gender justice in our schools.
AAPF's report, "Black Girls Matter: Pushed Out, Overpoliced and Underprotected" draws on national data and interviews with young women of color to highlight the unique challenges they face in school and particularly the way racial and gender stereotypes feed the discriminatory school-to-prison pipeline.
Schott's report, "Black Lives Matter" is the 2015 edition of the foundation's biennial Schott 50 State Report on Public Education and Black Males, and it presents national, state and large district data on graudation and achievement rates for boys of color.
The featured speakers for the webinar will be John H. Jackson, President and CEO of the Schott Foundation, and Kimberle Crenshaw, Executive Director of AAPF.
