Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Studies reveal that at every benchmark in African American students' lives from early childhood education through higher education, they encounter far more significant obstacles than many of their peers. African American students face racial discrimination in the form of implicit bias, microaggressions, or subtle racial epithets aimed at their race. They experience systematically lower expectations for achievement and excessive school discipline. This provides an overview of African American students' underlying needs and offers strategies for increasing and improving services for African American students, using evidence and resources from the Ways 2 Equity Playbook.
