In this webinar, The Cradle’s Our Children initiative brings together a panel to address some of the important educational issues facing our children, such as inequities in the education system and test biases that exist today. In addition, systemic bias will be addressed, such as why Black boys are more likely than any other group to be placed in Special Education classes.
Panelists share their perspectives regarding some major challenges facing Black children in schools such as: the lack of culturally competent teachers, the disparities in suspension rates for Black students compared to White students, and how our recent shift to remote learning has failed Black students in urban areas. We also discuss effective strategies parents can use to set their child up for success in school and what parents can do to ensure that teachers are setting appropriate expectations for their children.
