Free to attend - food and spirits available for purchase

Does a child learn better when their teacher looks like them? Join a casual conversation on the culture gap in Washington State schools.

The vast majority of teachers in Washington State’s K-12 schools are white (90%) and female (80%), yet the student body is only 56% White. This has led to what some call a "culture gap" - a huge proportion of students being taught by someone whose lived experience may be far different than theirs. This may contribute not only to lower grades and graduation rates, but higher rates of discipline.

But is a teacher's race even the issue? Is it more important to be of a similar religion, urban or rural background, or socioeconomic status?

Join us for a discussion on the culture gap in Washington’s classrooms. Daudi Abe, Seattle Central College professor and journalist, and Kristin Leong, education activist and former teacher, will explore the causes and solutions to our divided classrooms.
