2018 Theme:
The Courts, the Schools, and Social Justice
Keynote Address: Honorable Michele M. Castillo

The School of Education at CSU Channel Islands (CI) invites you to submit a proposal to present at the 10th Annual Conference for Social Justice in Education. The purpose of the annual event is to showcase the social justice oriented work being done in and around schools and community organizations in the region, to network with others who believe in the power and necessity of such work, and to learn from one another about how to teach and learn in ways that promote equity, peace, and integrity in public education.

This year’s theme is The Courts, the Schools, and Social Justice. The theme builds on the powerful scholarship of previous conferences and highlights the essential process of networking, of building a common agenda, and of creating opportunities for collaborative impact to achieve social justice by and through education.

Our vision is that this year’s conference will provide educators, parents, students and other community members with opportunities to have thoughtful conversations about laws, policies and practices that either undermine or advance the goal of achieving social justice in and through education. The conference is designed to be a venue for critical thinking and sharing insights into what works – and to inspire all of us to work together in moving that work forward. We hope that conference participants will walk away with: (1) greater understanding of the laws, policies and practices that undermine social justice in the courts and in the schools; (2) ideas for action and opportunities to pursue reforms to create equitable learning opportunities for all students; (3) connections with others in the community who are working toward social justice in education.

If you need to register, in person, on the day of the event, please come to the registration table in the Grand Salon by 8:00am. Lunch will be provided free of charge.

Walk-ins are welcome, on a space-available basis. We can't wait to see you there!
