Does Resisting Racial Equity Policies Make You a Racist?

Talking Racial Equity in Education at Liberty Classical

On Tuesday, March 5th, our next Education in Society event will be hosted at Liberty Classical Academy. Our guest, Katherine Kersten, a writer, attorney, and voice for education reform, will address the topic of racial equity in education policies and practices. She’ll be joined in a panel discussion with two public school teachers. Linda Hoekman, a high school science teacher, was recently featured in the Winter 2019 publication of Thinking Minnesota for resistance to her school district’s mandatory racial equity training. Rosa Maendel is an elementary and junior high teacher who has experienced the implications of racial equity policies in the classroom.

The evening’s panel discussion, hosted by Rebekah Hagstrom, is titled, “Confusion in the Classroom: How Racial Equity Policies are Shaping Today's Schools.” It is addressing both the ideologies behind racial equity training in education and the implications of it as it relates to quality and performance for students of all races. There will also be a time of open Q&A.

This event is free and open to the public. Please join us, and invite those you know who are passionate about education and its impact on our culture, as we address this important topic with an open mind.
