Time & Location

About the Event
We would like to welcome Teach For America alumni in the Nashville-Chattanooga area who identify as white for a conversation on school discipline and the school to prison pipeline hosted by TFA alum, Steph Tanner, the Dean of Culture at Lead Academy Brick Church.
We'll be discussing school discipline practices and the school to prison pipeline. We'll spend our time together collaboratively exploring both how we may have unknowingly contributed to the S2PP and how we can leverage our privilege and resources now to dismantle the growing and destructive system, from both within and outside of a school setting.
At Teach For America Nashville-Chattanooga, we have been reflecting on how we can live up to our into our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Among other things, we have expanded identity development and culturally relevant teaching as part of our program, increased staff diversity, and considered our work through an equity lens.
We still have so much more to do, and we know it will take all of us, working together toward an equitable and just society that starts with our role in education and our partnership with our TFA network.
We hope you will join us for this conversation.
