2016 TAC-D Summer Institute: Unleashing the Power of Culturally Responsive Education in the 21st Century: Empowering Students, Families and Educators
The Technical Assistance Center on Disproportionality (TAC-D), housed within NYU’s Metropolitan Center for Research on Equity and the Transformation of Schools (Metro Center), will host its 2016 Summer Institute, “Unleashing the Power of Culturally Responsive Education in the 21st Century: Empowering Students, Families and Educators.” TAC-D’s Summer Institute gives educators, researchers, and technical assistance providers an opportunity to look at methods of decreasing disparities in schools, particularly related to suspensions and other school discipline practices. Presented in partnership with the New York State Education Department, the institute’s goal is to provide attendees with practical strategies, tools, and research that they can bring back to their colleagues and use in a meaningful way to improve the policies and practices in their education organizations. Featured speakers include Alfredo Artiles, associate dean and the Ryan C. Harris Professor of Special Education at Arizona State University’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College; Jeff Duncan-Andrade, associate professor of Raza studies and education at San Francisco State University; and Gloria Ladson-Billings, the Kellner Family Chair in Urban Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Education.
