“The Benefits and Costs of Being an Ally for Racial Justice: A Case Study of a Race Curriculum Controversy in Seattle Public Schools” is the second talk in the AUS Spring Speaker Series Justice, Education, and Action.
This panel features several Seattle Public Schools teachers and alumni. They will discuss the recent attack on the study of race, which resulted in a suspended curriculum and a transferred teacher, the movement to reinstate both the curriculum and teacher, and the implications of this struggle on institutionalizing equality in today’s public schools.
This event is co-sponsored by the Antioch University Seattle’s Education and BA Completion programs.
This is a Washington State-Approved Continuing Education Credit Clock Hour Offering: 3 CE clock hours may be earned for the duration of the session. The clock hour fee is $8 for 3 clock hours, payable by cash or check (made out to Antioch University Seattle) at the session.
