I am facilitating a workshop on economic segregation in Brooklyn preschools. Join me!
The Brooklyn Free Space Preschool Diversity Committee Presents A Free Community Workshop:
OCCUPY BROOKLYN PRESCHOOL:
Exploring How the Opportunity Gap becomes the Achievement Gap
An interactive community forum to discuss the economic segregation that determines what early learning experiences are accessible to families of young children in Brooklyn; the long-term effects of this inequity at a crucial time of child development; and what we can do as an extended community to affect change.
Saturday, December 1st, 2-4 pm
The Pacific Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, 25 Fourth Ave. at Pacific St.
