Description

Around the world, black girls are being pushed out of schools because of policies that target them for punishment, says author and social justice scholar Monique W. Morris. The result: countless girls are forced into unsafe futures with restricted opportunities. How can we put an end to this crisis? In an impassioned talk, Morris uncovers the causes of "pushout" and shows how we can work to turn all schools into spaces where black girls can heal and thrive.

Wait...so instead of asking why black girls have so many behavioral problems you ask why they’re being targeted for punishment?

This all feels a little vague. I'm inclined to feel that black girls ARE more harshly treated than white peers but I'm not sure it is solely because whitey is against them. Why are we not asking these questions about Chinese or Indian kids?
