Researchers indicate that youth at risk and minority students statistically lead in a variety of negative categories including but not limited higher drop out rates, higher rates of placement in special education, higher rates with the criminal justice system and higher rates of living below the poverty threshold. Researchers indicate that school leadership/culture and teacher attitude regarding their students has a huge impact on relationship building, academic instructional practices and teacher expectations, which in tern impact student outcomes. You cannot teach someone whom you do not like. Moreover you cannot teach someone whom you do not value as a person. The strands Academic Advisement & School Leadership and Social & Emotional Skills relate well with this workshop, because leaders, teachers and other human service professional are instrumental in creating the culture that either enhances or diminishes the outcomes of the populations they serve.

Brief Program Description

Have you ever heard the statements “I got mines, you better get yours.” Building relationship with students goes beyond being “color blind”, it requires that we address our conscious and sub-conscious biases and gain an understanding how we got to the point where we are. So the question becomes is something wrong with the students we serve or his something wrong with the way we interact with them.

Summary
