Attend this program to receive the basic information you need to represent the education needs of children of color, children with disabilities, and children in the foster care system from a racial/ethnic, socio-economic, disability, and systems involved equity focused lens.
What You Will Learn
After completing this program, participants will be able to:
- Analyze how US legal, historical, institutional, and economic systems, combined with residential segregation, have produced disparities in our current education system
- Identify how implicit bias impacts themselves as advocates and our education system and educators, leading to disproportionately negative education outcomes
- Utilize knowledge on how trauma (including racialized trauma) impacts learning to advocate on behalf of abused and neglected children and children of color
- Analyze data to see how children of color, children with disabilities, and children impacted by the child welfare and juvenile legal system are disproportionately over- and under-represented in our child welfare, school discipline, and special education systems
- Utilize anti-racist advocacy techniques to effectively represent children in our education system.
Who Should Attend
Any attorney or advocate currently working with children in an educational setting, and anyone interested in providing pro bono assistance to children of color, children with disabilities, and/or children in the foster care system, from a racial justice and equity focused framework, would benefit from attending.
