Save the date! Restoring the Promise to Black Girls: A Conversation with Monique Morris on School Pushout
Join ELC in Pittsburgh on March 9th for a conversation with Dr. Monique W. Morris, author of "Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools" and cofounder of the National Black Women's Justice Institute. As part of ELC's continued work to create positive school climates where students can learn free of exclusionary discipline and discriminatory practices, this conversation will focus on Dr. Morris' new book, and the challenges Black girls face in public schools - from inappropriate pushout policies and practices, to barriers to academic achievement. We are hosting a similar event with Dr. Morris in Philadelphia on April 4th.
