Color of Education

As parents, we all know how important providing a sound education is to our child. Ideally, a school is a nurturing environment where our children learn from teachers, coaches and classmates and start to imagine their futures. But sometimes things can get in the way of that dream. Societal biases as well as spoken and unspoken prejudices fuel expectations, and our Black children feel the impact.

We have assembled an esteemed panel of educators from various backgrounds and perspectives to explore the topic with us. We will pose to the panelists the concerns we have heard from adoptive families who are raising Black children.

Concerns such as:

  • The challenges your child may face beginning as early as preschool
  • How best to advocate for your child in the face of biases in the school setting
  • Ways to help close the achievement and discipline gaps
