Hello All,

This USF event may be of interest to educators and folks interested in education equity. Dean Kumashiro’s research focuses on anti-oppressive education. I suspect he will focus on how to reframe the debate about education to focus on how systemic inequity gets perpetuated. It is free and open to the public.

How Blaming Teachers Distorts the Bigger Picture

The University Council on Diversity and Inclusion invites you to an evening with School of Education’s Dean, Kevin Kumashiro. He will discuss the current debates on educational reform that seem to unquestioningly place blame on public school teachers, teacher unions, and teacher educators for all that is wrong with schools, with little critical questioning of the real, systemic problems. His presentation will highlight the common and commonsensical ways that both the American public and influential leaders think about the problems and solutions for our nation’s schools, and suggests ways to see the bigger picture and reframe the debate.

All are welcome. Free parking will be available for event participants at the Hayes-Healy Underground Garage on Golden Gate Ave. & Tamalpais Ter. For more information please call 415-422-2821 or visit our website.
