The current education system is dominated by political narratives that devalue the very people that our schools are supposed to serve. Students, teachers, administrators, and staff are left underpaid and under-supported while scapegoated for the systemic problems facing these institutions. More specifically this manifests in students, disproportionately Black and other marginalized identities, being suspended and over-disciplined, teachers burning out, and left without tools to manage classrooms.
The Black Student Experience is a safe space to develop black students’ social-emotional skills while hearing their true voices on what lived civics looks like from their perspective. Join us as we build community and listen to the needs of our black youth.
