UCEA EdTalk: The Fight for Equity, Dignity, & Public Education in Detroit: Front Line Perspectives

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The city of Detroit and its public schools have been deeply impacted by emergency management, massive school closures, the proliferation of charter schools, the brink of bankruptcy, and a host of neoliberal policies that have destabilized Black schools and neighborhoods in the city. Yet, despite this complex context and mainstream narratives that portray Detroit as a city of despair, Detroit is a place where advocates continue to resist and fight for equity, dignity and public education for children. This session will engage in rich and interactive dialogue with various stakeholder engaged in advocacy work “on the ground” to right educational wrongs in Detroit. This session will also offer insights to attendees about how they might take actions to address deep-seated educational inequities in their context.
