How do we build the schools, classrooms, and learning communities that every student needs and deserves? What role do teachers play in creating these conditions and possibilities?
Join Rethinking Schools and the Anti-Racist Teaching & Learning Collective as we continue the conversation among teachers and students, which we began in the January 2023 webinar Beyond “Schools in Crisis.” This discussion brings together educators, students, and community organizers to examine the realities we face in our schools. In this webinar, we will ask: Where do we go from here? We’ll explore not only the possibilities that we dream of, but those that already exist in our classrooms, our schools, and our communities.
