The David C. Anchin Center for the Advancement of Teaching Presents: Education for Justice 

October 15-17
This conference will explore these questions as we collaboratively forge a path forward towards a more socially-just, equitable education for students, especially those underserved in our current school structures. Register here.

The David C. Anchin Center for the Advancement of Teaching Presents: EDUCATION FOR JUSTICE. October 15-17, 2021.  After shepherding students through a global pandemic that  highlighted so many longstanding inequalities that serve as a  barrier to achievement, teachers and administrators are returning to school this fall with a new unknown—what does education look like as communities adjust to the post-pandemic world? Campuses and school buildings are reopening their doors for a “return to normal,” though this approach doesn’t fully encompass the complexity of what teachers, students, and families have endured since March of last year. Questions remain about how to best accelerate learning for students who have experienced learning loss, teachers’ well-being and emotional health, teacher recruitment and retention, primary and secondary trauma, and the health and safety of everyone in schools. This conference will explore these questions as we collaboratively forge a path forward towards a more socially-just, equitable education for students, especially those underserved in our current school structures. Themes that we will explore include: How to accelerate learning for students with learning loss and how to assure equitable instructional practices, high expectations, and rich learning opportunities for student success. Supports for teachers’ well-being and emotional health, such as restorative practices and healing. Strengthening education as a conduit of opportunity and justice in areas including equity and teaching in a context that acknowledges the current climate around racism, discrimination and structural inequities. We will also explore topics such as intersectionality, LGBTQ justice and supports for educators of color. Link to the event here: www.tinyurl.com/anchinconf
