Belief Systems Approach
If educators and school leaders intentionally examine their personal beliefs and biases they are better positioned and prepared to develop and implement culturally responsive educational experiences that support all students, in particular black and Latino young men, to enter, persist, and succeed in college and career.
Educators, parents, administrators, central employees, and students come together to discuss equity issues.
Classroom teachers meet to examine their beliefs and practices in serving students, especially young men of color.
Principals and assistant principals explore systematic bias and racism in schools and strategies to disrupt and dismantle the broken system.
Young men from across the city come together to bond, raise socio-political consciousness, and positively shape their identities.
