The conveners of the State of Black Learning (SBL) believe it is imperative that educators regularly engage in professional development opportunities that train and equip them to understand Black student development and improve their responsiveness to systemic inequalities that impact Black student learning everyday. Therefore, the mission of SBL is to foster dialogue and provide practical tools for all educators (teachers, specialists, principals, administrative assistants, coaches and more) to incorporate sustainable resources into the work they do.
Historically, education has been seen as a ‘one size fits all’ system for students. Research shows this is not the case, especially with Black students. Whether considering a child’s home life or integrating a learning strategy to enhance student engagement, it is essential to hone in on the ways in which educators interact with and teach Black students. SBL is designed to increase educator effectiveness and provide the tools necessary to help conference participants address all of the factors that improve student outcomes and help Black children learn.
SBL is a two-day conference which gathers thought leaders, learning stakeholders and educators across the country who teach through various platforms. We aim to cultivate personal and professional development among educators who value knowledge and the enhancement of Black students’ lives. SBL uses insightful analysis, commentary and facilitated dialogue on best practices to help participants critically discuss how systemic inequities in race, gender and socioeconomic status continue to shape and impact learning for Black children. SBL participants will be eligible for Act 48 credits for their participation.
