Professor Joy Williamson-Lott, Jesse Hagopian (MIT '06), Nathan Simoneaux (MIT '13) and graduate student Saraswati Noel will serve as panelists for the Town Hall Seattle event #EducationSoWhite.
Over 80 percent of teachers in American public schools are white, while the majority of students are kids of color. During #EducationSoWhite, a panel of dynamic education leaders will examine the impact of the gaps in our schools currently separating students and teachers. The topics that will be fueling this event include: the achievement gap, ideas for solutions in recruiting and retaining teachers of color, equitable restorative justice practices, the school-to-prison pipeline, inclusion—not just tolerance—for LGBTQ/QPOC teachers and students, and more.
Tickets are $5 and doors open at 6:30 p.m.
