The Central Jersey Consortium for Excellence and Equity will present a membership-only workshop titled Beyond Diversity: Steps for Uprooting Racism, Privilege, and Institutional Inequity presented by renowned author, essayist, and educator, Tim Wise on Monday, September 21, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Magill Commons Club Rooms 107/108/109.
During this interactive workshop, participants will explore the causes, both formal and informal, for institutional racial inequities. By examining the various policies, practices, and procedures that exist within educational, employment and organizational settings – and which often inadvertently perpetuate unequal opportunity and treatment – workshop attendees can develop strategies for shifting their institutional cultures in the direction of greater parity.

All students who are interested in Education are welcome to stop by McAllan Hall for dessert and meet the faculty. Music will be provided by Monmouth University’s own WCMX radio!

Special Education Reconsidered

Special Education Attorney, Barger & Gaines
Wilson Hall Auditorium

Reception with light fare and refreshments starting at 6 p.m.
About This Lecture
Federal special education law requires that school districts provide students with a “free appropriate public education.” But just what does that mean? In 1982 the Supreme Court considered this question in the landmark decision of Board of Education of the Hendrick Hudson Central School District v. Amy Rowley. Since then, however, the various federal court circuits across the country have adopted varying standards for determining whether a special education program is actually appropriate – some adopting the standard set out by the Supreme Court and others deciding to impose a greater standard. As a result, there is an inconsistency across our country and therefore an inconsistency in just how much educational benefit students with disabilities are entitled to receive based on where they live. This inconsistency led the Supreme Court to once again consider this question through the case of Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District.
Join Ms. Gaines for an interactive conversation about the Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District case, the arguments made for and against imposing a greater obligation on school districts to provide more than the minimum educational benefit to students with disabilities, and the potential impact of the Supreme Court’s decision on the climate of special education across the United States.
