Schools are welcoming students back into buildings for full-time in-person instruction in a few short weeks and now is the perfect time to take a hard look at both our practices and systems to build a culturally responsive education environment that connects students, teachers, and families.
Join an interactive discussion with nationally recognized education researcher, Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings, and school and district leaders who are employing new practices to advance equity for students this coming school year. Dr. Ladson-Billings will also share her vision for culturally relevant pedagogy in a post-COVID-19 world.
Dr. Ladson-Billings is best known for her theoretical work on Culturally Relevant Pedagogy and has supported equitable classrooms and Black student achievement for 30 years.
