Community-Based Scholarship: Dr. Vajra Watson
Monday, August 12, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Community-based Scholarship: Reimagining higher education in the lives of young people
At this event, Watson will explain how the cycle of social reproduction and underachievement can be broken by creating programs and policies that rely upon a social-justice process. When students are supported to be the authors of their own lives, they can achieve college readiness, a sense of civic responsibility and critical consciousness.
Light refreshments will be served, and attendees will have a chance to win copies of Dr. Watson’s recent books. “Transformative Schooling: Towards Racial Equity in Education” and “Learning to Liberate: Community-Based Solutions to the Crisis in Urban Education.”
