Workshop Description

In order to meet the cultural humility requirements for the social work profession it is essential that practitioners understand how oppression is perpetuated through various systems in the United States. In this session, the instructor will describe the basics about the intersections of American public education, race, and ways the legal system has sustained inequity. Through interactive activities and checks for understanding, participants will build their awareness on the ways individuals and institutions perpetuate unequal educational environments for marginalized students, and how movements for equity have transformed over time. By the end of the session, participants will forge connections between public education, race, and the law and sharpen their ability to infuse historical context into their practice. 


Learning Objectives

After the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the history of (racialized) public education
  • Explain how the legal system of the US has supported unequal educational outcomes based on determinations of race
  • Describe connections between public education, race, and the law
  • Apply historical context of public education, race, and the law into practice

This workshop is approved for 2.0 continuing education credit hours.
