In some cases, it is truly a child’s only lifeline. Lack of resources, loss of contact and disparities in home settings will prove to be a severe detriment in today’s environment.
Education: Reimagining Community Centered Learning
The theme of this discussion today is whether sustaining community involvement will be more difficult than returning to formal sporadic connections between schools and community. While families and community leaders might step up to help schools, it is often on school districts to make the first move to work more closely with the community. How do we forge a new path forward? And how do we fund this new path?
Criminal Justice: Centering Community in Understanding Student Behavior
Disproportionately, Black, Brown, and Poor students are disciplined in school settings that often results in some form of school suspension. For our conversation today, we will explore the potential power that communities hold to disrupt the school to prison pipeline.
Some ask when will it be fair? Where does a pipeline to jail divert to a pathway to happiness, success, and contribution to one’s wellbeing? Can society continue to waste generations, regardless of color or ethnicity?
Where do You Live?
Communities form the bedrock of our connection to humanity. It is where we learn, live, and make our way through society. Can equity be denied because of our economic standing?
Community Designed Healthy Neighborhoods
If we are looking for changes in a school, then we must look at what is changing in the communities that feed into the school. We also know that transformation is spearheaded by community leaders that have the trust of the people. The community leader becomes the local change agent for healthy environments. Our conversation today will lean on the significance of community leaders in transforming the health of neighborhoods, families, and students.
