Dismantling Racism in Education

Social Justice Forum: Dismantling Racism in Education

Watch the Wenatchee Valley Museum and a panel of local educators discuss dismantling racism in education, a part of our Social Justice Series conversations. Sixty-six years ago, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled in Brown v. Board of Education that “separate but equal” education was unconstitutional; however, race and economic disparities continue to be barriers to education. Thank you to our community who joined us live on October 7 to engage in a thoughtful, inclusive, and open-minded discussion about systemic racism in education, about the inequities this creates, and about the steps we can take to begin to break down these barriers.
