French American International School is a member of Speakers for Parents Educators and Knowledge (SPEAK), a coalition of San Francisco K-8 schools that have joined together to enhance parent education. The group's goal is to enrich the education and learning experience of our families, our children, and our communities.
Talking to Our Children About Race: A Matter of Life and Health
As the world around us has become increasingly diverse, it is important that our children develop knowledge, self-awareness and skills that will allow them to navigate cross-cultural relationships with respect. Dr. Howard Stevenson will provide an exploration of racial stress and examine racial literacy as a capacity for improving conversations and relationships.
Dr. Stevenson is the Constance Clayton Professor of Urban Education, Professor of Africana Studies in the Human Development & Quantitative Methods Division of the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania.
