You Can't Fix What You Don't Look At: Acknowledging Race in Addressing Disproportionality

October 22, 2015 -

4:00pm to 5:30pm

In the last year, even as we have been confronted by tragic inequlities in communities from Ferguson, Mo., to Madison, Wis., a series of national reports has highlighted continuing inequities in school discipline.  This presentation by Russell, Skiba, PhD--professor in the Department of Counseling and Educational Psychology in the School of Education at Indiana University Bloomington--will use recent work of the Discipline Disparities Research-to-Practice Collaborative to outline the current status of research and the need to abandon "race-neutral" policies in order to actively identify and challenge inequity in school discipline.

This event is free and open to the public.  Reception immediately following the presentation
