Diversity Forum

As schools around the country work to create a diverse student body and staff, an interesting conversation emerges about whether young people are being given the support they need to truly integrate into their school communities.

Come learn strategies to help children cope with economic and racial diversity, strategies to address the unique self-image issues mixed-race children face, and strategies to help educators provide the right type of support to serve a diverse student body.
