On March 22nd , Newton Public Schools will host a forum entitled “Talking to Children about Race: Why and How?” The session, designed for a K-5 parent audience and led by Horace Mann Elementary teacher Mike Feldstein and METCO director Maricel Sheets, will:
- Allow reflection of your own experiences around issues of race and racism
- Demonstrate the importance of early conversations with children on race
- Provide “how-to” help for guiding children and answering challenging questions
- Highlight resources available to help parents and families navigate the issues
The forum will be held at Angier Elementary, 1697 Beacon Street from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. An RSVP is not required, but will help the district plan for materials and activities.
