Course Description

How can we address achievement gaps in our schools?

How can we become more culturally responsive in our growingly diverse schools?

What can I do to ensure equity in my school and classroom?

Join West Georgia RESA for a new study where we will begin having critical conversations about race and equity. This group will examine  Closing the Attitude Gap by Baruti Kafele. Prior to our 2 meetings, you will be assigned chapters to read. During the meetings, we will discuss the book and examine how we can impact change in our schools and communities. Online participation is required as part of this course. 

This book study culminates with meeting Principal Kafele on June 6 at West Georgia RESA. Principal Kafele will deliver a training aimed at helping us close the gaps we are experiencing.
