Brightbeam CEO Chris Stewart and award-winning educator and activist Nicholas Ferroni are wondering why white parents and their demands seem to dominate media, when students of color are a majority of public school students.
Recognizing that it's well past time to #AskParentsOfColor their thoughts when covering important education issues, we are launching a Twitter chat and we want to hear from you!
Students of color make up the majority of public school students, yet we rarely see their parents/guardians in the media or being interviewed. It is necessary that we listen to parents of color. Thank you @citizenstewart for leading this conversation. #AskParentsOfColorhttps://t.co/Hs0sLaofw0
Follow the hashtag #AskParentsofColor, our account @edu_post, and join us for a Twitter chat at 7PM ET tomorrow, Thursday, 5/26. Let's have a real conversation about why parents of color are so often erased and how we can do better.
