Black Boys Workshop
Academic Term and Year
The plight of black males in schools today provides us with devastating statistics in regards to their academic achievement. This course will provide a lens to understand the unique circumstances facing black males in our society, shows how this societal experience plays out in schools, and explores ways in which the system institutionalizes practices that marginalize, and perhaps criminalize, black boys. You will engage in personal reflection while examining ways to transform our school environments into places that nurture the spirit and foster high-level engagement and achievement of our lowest performing, yet most disregarded student population.
