Title:

Solutions to Educating Black and Latino Males

Abstract:

According to the Children’s Defense Fund, 1 in 3 African American Males and 1 in 6 Latino Males born after 2001 will end up in prison. These statistics are staggering, especially when most of the school suspensions are black and Latino male students. Many Educators look at these troubled students misbehaving as bad students, when some are really scared students in pain. This workshop will give strategies to educate, activate and motivate black and Latino male students who have experienced trauma in their lives. Educators will receive strategies and techniques that have been proven to work in school districts around the US and abroad but you must come in with an open mind leaving your biases at the door. Come and engage in this fun, interactive workshop and receive tools you can use right away.
