Course Description: The #BlackLivesMatter movement was built upon the basic concept that black Americans lives, experiences, and challenges they face are important and do matter.  Working within the education system, racial disparities continue to be seen including suspension/expulsion rates, and academic performance.  Some have called the education system “still separate and unequal.” 

This course will explore racial disparities in schools, ways districts have worked to improve the lives of students of color, and look to create a more inclusive climate for students of color.     

This is a one credit course.
