Decoding Dyslexia's "Implicit and Explicit Race Bias" Informational Night - Feb. 101/22/2020
PPS staff are invited to attend Decoding Dyslexia's "Implicit and Explicit Race Bias" Informational Night on Monday, Feb. 10, from 7-9 p.m. at the Providence Medical Center's Amphitheater Room (4805 NE Glisan St.). The session will examine the educational disparities among Oregon’s Black and Brown youth in literacy, reading, math, and disciplinary actions. Decoding Dyslexia's research has concluded that it would be beneficial for educators and administrators to evaluate their personal biases and to acknowledge how these biases play out in classrooms and educational environments. The presentation will include an interactive activity to help you see yourself and others with more compassion and empathy. Click here to view the event flier and here to RSVP.
