Changing Course: Re-imagining the Role of Schools in Communities

Recording: Changing Course: Re-imagining the Role of Schools in Communities, Date TBA

During an educators' meeting in Memphis, KeAsia Norman, an educator and aspiring school leader says, “If a school isn’t actively engaged in the community, it’s just another building.” How can schools transform themselves from impassive buildings into vital, community spaces? How can school cultures and curricula reflect the needs of their constituents? In this live taping of "Changing Course," we’ll hear insights from visionary BIPOC teachers and school leaders who are radically re-imagining the role of schools within communities.
