IEA – R2 – Equity in Education Training – Lewiston
May 18, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Through interactive and experiential learning with a combination of individual, small and whole group activities, this session will teach participants about the four types of racism and be an open and safe place to discuss racial and social inequities. Participants will be given resources from Race Forward and the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights to create effective lessons and develop strategies to promote equity and opportunity for all students. Participants will become aware of unconscious biases and the ways those biases contribute to inequities in our schools. They will expand the work of the association on issues of institutional racism, including raising awareness of improving school climate and culture.
