Black History Month: Black Diversity and Inclusion in the School System
Black Diversity and Inclusion in the School System
Moses Latigo Odida returns to King's with his documentary, School to Prison Pipeline. The “school-to-prison pipeline” is a disturbing national trend wherein children are funneled out of public schools and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. The Office of EDID is hosting this film viewing and panel discussion as part of Black History Month.
In an effort to make King's a more inclusive and diverse place, King's signed the Scarborough Charter with the promise to intentionally hire more Black faculty, staff and recruit more Black students. Let's discuss what this means and how you think we can move forward.
