State of Black Learning Pittsburgh

August 17, 2018 - August 18, 2018

August 17th-18th 

Historically, education has been seen as a ‘one size fits all’ system for students. Research shows this is not the case with Black students. Whether considering a child’s home life or integrating a learning strategy to enhance student engagement, it is essential to hone in on the ways in which educators interact with and teach Black students. SBL is designed to increase educator effectiveness and provide the tools necessary to help participants address all of the factors that improve student outcomes and help Black children learn in the greater Pittsburgh region.

SBL is a two-day conference which will gather thought leaders, learning stakeholders, and educators across Pittsburgh who teach through various platforms. The aim is to use insightful analysis, commentary, and facilitated dialogue on best practices to help participants critically discuss how systemic inequities in race, gender, and socioeconomic status continue to shape and impact learning for Black children. At the conclusion of the conference, all participants will be charged to constantly seek and implement proven and innovative solutions that take action against the systemic inequalities facing black students.
