Parent Power School-December 2015

On December 12, 2015 over 75 parents from NYC public schools joined CEJ for a training on racism and resistance in public education. Parents had the opportunity to discuss the different forms of individual, interpersonal, system and institutional racism that they encounter in their daily lives, and the historical impacts these forms of racism have had on public education. Participants broke into small groups to engage in conversations about strategies to combat racism in schools, including: transformative parent engagement, restorative justice practices, culturally relevant curriculum, and equity in school funding. The group also discussed tips for interrupting and effectively engaging with racist comments when having conversations with people.
