#EducationSoWhite 2018

A panel of education leaders examines the impact of the culture gaps in schools separating students and teachers. Topics include: the fact that 90% of teachers in Washington State are white although almost half of students are kids of color, the achievement gap, ideas for solutions in recruiting and retaining teachers of color, equitable restorative justice practices, the school-to-prison pipeline, inclusion-not just tolerance-for LGBTQ/QPOC teachers and students, and more. Presented by Town Hall Seattle, Seattle University and The Seattle Times.
