Working With Boys of Color: An Issue of Equity
This workshop focuses on the prevailing disposition regarding students of color in general in this country, but boys of color in particular. We also focus on how those dispositions bleed into the schooling process and the impact on the attitudes, experiences, and social/academic outcomes of young men of color. This workshop is hyper-focused on challenging existing mindsets, conscious and unconscious, of those who serve young men of color and making the correlation between perception and practice. This workshop is the foundation of the other workshops in this series.
