Part of our goal as the Equity and Inclusion Committee is to present articles, talks, and blog posts on diverse topics that impact our work and our students. To kick it off, we’d like to present an article from Ohio State’s very own Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity. This article takes a look at discipline in our K-12 education system and how it is racially biased. You can find the article here or linked above: http://kirwaninstitute.osu.edu/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/racial-disproportionality-schools-02.pdf .
After reading, please feel free to comment your thoughts below! Consider: how does this impact our work? While we can’t change their experiences in K-12, how can we use this information to better serve our students?
Any other topics you’d like to see covered? Feel free to reach out to anyone on the Equity & Inclusion Committee or email Nevrekar.email@example.com.
