Session:  Exploring "Empowering Early Career Educators for Racial Justice"

Presenters:  Alex Pieterse, Kathleen McLean, Kathryn Schiller, Bernice Rivera, Ellen Sullivan

This workshop builds off the work of a unique district-labor-university partnership launched this fall to develop professional development resources around racial and social justice for early career educators and their mentors. Facilitated by the presenters during the roundtable, representatives of the participating districts -Schenectady, Amsterdam and Kingston - will have opportunities to share with each other and other attendees the types of workshops underway and continue planning for future activities. The initial workshops have focused on defining race and ethnicity in American society, with a focus on how these terms have shifted over time and implications of racial categories as social rather than biological constructs. Future workshops will focus on educational equality, discipline disproportionality, approaches to having difficult discussions around these issues and strategies for reducing inequality and disproportionality
