Social Justice and Anti-Systemic Racism Practices
2 hours running time
Racial and Ethnic Disparities continue to be an area of deep concern for California. Poor children and children from minority groups are less likely to be identified as gifted and talented, and more likely to be identified as requiring special education services. They are also more likely to attend schools with a greater police presence, increasing the odds that they will enter the criminal justice system. School psychologists have an ethical responsibility to end systemic racism and to promote antiracist policies and practices. This segment will present methodology for providing services to students, while addressing cultural biases that negatively impact outcomes for youth.
