Join Dr. Catherine Barnes, CEO of Sudden Impact Solutions and leader of the Black Parents Support Network, as she addresses the shortcomings of the educational system during the pandemic in underserved communities, the need for overcoming parents’ perceptions of judgment by educators, and how educators can foster relationships with parents in order to ensure continuous learning for students during these trying times.
“We are not coming in to judge parents and we are not expecting them to be teachers, but we do value what they bring to the table.”
“We need to make sure that we are addressing students where they are today, socially as well as academically”
