Description:       

SERC and the SERC Foundation are excited to hold a conference on the importance of racial equity in education.  

Calvin Terrell, founder and lead facilitator of Social Centric, and Aaron Jafferis, a playwright and teacher, will keynote this important conversation on an equity transformation approach to ensure that all students get what they need to be successful in school and in life.

Breakout sessions will address the multifaceted ways that race and systemic racism impede our students’ outcomes and limit opportunities for success in academics, social development, health, and family engagement. Participants will learn about the work of individuals committed to supporting students of color and engage in activities on transforming systems to support an excellent and equitable education for all.

Breakout Session:

  • The Quilt of Humanity: Examining Self
  • Embracing the Struggle: Effectively Building Relationships in High Schools
  • Keeping us Down: Exploring the Impact of Internalized Oppression
  • Educational Equity and School Climate: A Plan for Action
  • Serving the Needs of New Arrivals: Undocumented and Refugee Children in Connecticut
  • Whiteness: Exploring, Reflecting. And Engaging for Systemic Change
  • Empowering Communication: Effective Inter-racial Dialogue to Build Positive School-Family Partnerships
  • A powerful lesson for dismantling stereotypes that affect different racial groups and students with disabilities
  • Leveling the playing field in Mathematics for African American and Latino Elementary Students
