Building and Sustaining Racially-Progressive Schools
This panel discussion is organized around two questions:
1. What does a racially-progressive school, in which all students, teachers, and staff feel that they are treated equitably, look like?
2. Why is it so challenging to create and sustain such schools?
Panelists: Princeton Public Schools Interim Superintendent Barry Galasso, Princeton High School Assistant principal and parent, Cecilia Birge; Equity consultant, Marceline Du Bose; historian & former Princeton High School Guidance Counselor, Shirley Satterfield; Princeton High School Teacher, Dr. Joy Barnes-Johnson; Princeton Public School parents, Dr. Keith Wailoo and Dr. Lynda Dodd; Princeton Public Schools Alums, Juan Polanco (2013), Brianna Silva (2018), and Geoffrey Allen (2019); and Princeton High School Students Mojisola Ayodele and Eli Edelman (2022).
