Dismantling Barriers to Equity in Education: Best Practices for Educators, Parents, and the Community

Dr. Noguera will facilitate a workshop that will explore the barriers to the development of equitable and inclusive schools. Workshop participants will learn about barriers that incorporate a complex set of factors involving social, economic and political systems, and the way in which schools engage with children, parents and the community. Workshop participants will also be introduced to best teaching practices in schools who are empowered through strategic collaboration with stakeholders in their local communities, in order to identify and remove the barriers to academic achievement, thus reducing  educational inequities.
