Miseducating the Public: Educators and students respond to anti-diversity movements

Tuesday, May 14, 2024
1:00-2:00 PM
The efforts at the federal, state, and local levels to restrict K-12 and higher education classroom teaching have been characterized as “educational gag orders.” Tactics such as reporting educators and schools are being used to miseducate the public and maintain control over what is taught, how it’s taught, and who teaches it.

Join us to learn about the state of anti-diversity policies and rhetoric across the United States and how these efforts are impacting millions of students in schools and higher educational contexts. Speakers including educators and students will speak about the impact of censorship and anti-diversity movements.

This event is based on Spark Magazine’s special series on Miseducating The Public Anti-CRT Movement, Rhetoric, Policy and Impact.
