Description

The Transforming Education for Social Justice Regional Initiative, funded in large part by the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts, is designed to equip and support PK-12 educators to create learning environments that support engaged and empowered learning for all young people in Franklin, Hampshire, and Hampden Counties.

As part of this initiative, CES is offering 3 regional Social Justice and Equity in Schools "Gather-ins" for Hampshire, Hampden, and Franklin counties. These gatherings will serve as a follow-up to reflect on the learning that came out of the October 2016 Transforming Education for Social Justice (#TE4SJ) conference and expand the network of educators working on equity in schools in each region.

During each regional specific gather-in we will:

  • make new connections with other educators;
  • reflect on current challenges and possibilities for that county;
  • spend some time discussing and developing goals for implementing youth-centered social justice practices in schools.

Audience and Grade Level

Administrators, Principals, Teachers, Curriculum DIrectors, Technology Directors, Specialists, Parents/Caretakers, Students; Grades PK-12
