E4E/Teach Plus House Meeting on Racial Harassment in Schools
E4E-Chicago Virtual Meeting
, Chicago, IL
Both educators and students of color experience racism daily across the state in our schools. These experiences create hostile work and learning environments that result in a variety of barriers for educators and students alike. However, most racist incidents go unreported for lack of clearly defined standards and victims’ fears that reports will be ineffective – or worse, spark retaliation.
Our partners at Teach Plus Illinois have been working hard to generate support and emphasize the urgency for a bill that would prevent future harm in schools. Join our joint virtual meeting to learn more about the issue, network with others, and share your perspectives and ideas!
