Description:

Disciplining Black Boys: Strategies for Disrupting the School to Prison Pipeline
Feb. 4, 2020; 9 am - noon at FEA
Presenter: Robin Harden Daniels, Ed.D, FEA Consultant
Fee: $75
Since 1968, the US Department of Education has maintained a Civil Rights Database. This database documents vital school activities that includes disaggregated information on the rate and outcomes of disciplinary infractions. This data comes from school districts across the nation. It provides a clear pattern which confirms that Black and Latino students and students with special needs receive more severe and more frequent discipline than white peers who commit the same offenses.
This half day workshop explores the "whys?" behind this damaging phenomena and then transitions to a discussion on research-based and practitioner-confirmed alternative strategies to managing disciplinary infractions.
