COVID-19 has illuminated many areas of inequity in our educational system. Not every student has the same access online. Not every family has the support needed to tutor. We all have seen that in the last several months. But leaders in conversations around educational equity have long known that our schools are not equitable, especially when it comes to race. COVID-19 has given us an opportunity to have critical conversations and develop solutions together.
Join us on October 8, 2020 from 11:30 am-1:00 pm for a statewide virtual FREE convening around Racial Equity and Education. Dr. Benjamin Danielson, Director of Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic in Seattle, will explore the role of racial equity, diversity, access, and inclusion in our public education system. We will also hear from 2021 Washington state Teacher of the Year Brooke Brown. Then, join us as we break into groups to discuss the issue together.
