Keeping it Real: Attitudes, Privilege and Project


This frank conversation focuses on the difficult topics we typically avoid. We tend to talk up diversity but fail to understand what’s not meeting the needs of all students. Learn from bright spots in public schools that are changing attitudes, opening hearts and serving students through authentic learning experiences. Project based learning schools can be a lever to close the opportunity gap among disengaged and disenfranchised youth. Big hint: changing school culture starts with shifting mindsets among the adults in the building.
