A Discussion about Diversity Training – Podcast Episode 90 | Classnotes Podcast 90
Classnotes Podcast (May 31, 2011) Schools are more successful when they actively embrace the cultural and racial diversity of their communities. And with federal requirements to protect the civil rights of their students and employees, school sometimes need assistance, particularly when local populations change quickly. The U.S. network of equity assistance centers are often called upon to help schools and communities better understand what they need to be doing to ensure that all of their students have an equal opportunity for academic achievement.
Bradley Scott, Ph.D., director of the IDRA South Central Collaborative for Equity, describes how today’s diversity training – that helps schools take stock and learn how to prepare themselves and their students for a diverse world – is so far removed from yesterday’s typical surface-level sensitivity training. Bradley is interviewed by Christie Goodman, APR, IDRA communications manager.
