6th annual Education for Liberation Conference:
#BlackLivesMatter: Centering Racial Justice in Our Fight for Public Education
At this year’s TAG conference, we invite participants to connect the national fight for racial justice to the local transformation of Philadelphia’s education system. Together we will reflect on our practice and experiences, imagine new possibilities, and activate ourselves to do the work that will create the school system Philadelphia students deserve. Join us.
Currently, the fight for racial justice is at the forefront of our national conversation. There’s a reinvigorated movement to address the systemic racism within the nation’s criminal justice system. How is this mobilization and raised consciousness informing our fight for quality public education? What are the implications for changing the foundations of our schooling system and re-energizing our classroom practice?
Meanwhile, the fight for quality public education is at the forefront of our local conversation. Debates rage over excessive standardized testing, charter vs. public schools, fair funding, and local control. How does a racial justice analysis shape our approach to these issues? In a city where we are educating mostly low-income students of color, how are we ensuring that we center our work on their lived experiences, needs, and successful futures?
