SoCal POCIS Rethinking Diversity

We are inviting ALL southern California independent school K-12th faculty, staff, administrators, and parents to join us for our Rethinking Diversity Speaker Series event featuring Jason David.

Jason David is a program associate at Facing History and Ourselves in Los Angeles. As a former high school Humanities teacher, he was a member of a multicultural leadership team that developed curriculum to explore issues of identity and diversity to foster an inclusive school climate. Outside of formal education spaces, has helped lead a local racial justice organization for the last decade.

Using curricular material from Facing History and Ourselves, we will explore origins of race, the history of eugenics thinking, and the emerging science of heredity in the late 19th and 20th centuries to understand how these ideas shaped segregation in education. We’ll grapple with the on- going legacy of segregated schools and consider where our own independent school experiences are situated in this unsettling history. This will be an interactive workshop – intended to provide practical and helpful tools that can be used in the classroom.
