Examining Voice in Schools

Centering Community in Schools: Expressing Voice and Building Leadership

CalState EastBay



A research, practice and advocacy institute

February 27, 2010

From 8:30AM to 12 Noon

Arts and Education Building:  AE 1203


Overview and Purpose

This institute centers on understanding the role of voice in educational research, practice, and advocacy efforts around policy and governance. In particular, educators will wrestle with critical race theory notions of what voice is and how excluded voices hold keys to transforming educational communities. Community educators provide workshops that center voice in understanding and addressing racism, through focus on youth participatory action research, community and parental advocacy, and inquiry geared toward sustainable reform.


Participants will be exposed to a range of discussions and workshops dealing with youth and participatory research, parents and schools, systems change and voice, collaboration in learning communities, and addressing prejudice in community school relations.


Non-CSUEB educators are welcome to attend and are eligible to receive one academic unit for professional development credits through the University’s Extension Program. Contact information for enrollment
