Call for Proposals (CLOSED)

Introduction

Thank you for submitting a proposal to our conference. We are especially interested in topic proposals that meet the theme: Actions for Social Justice in Education.  

With this theme in mind, we are asking presenters to think about the ways in which the work you are engaged in communicates actual forward movement.  The movement towards greater equity and representation for our Black, immigrant, low income, and disabled children as well as youth in your setting. We want conference participants to learn about actual successes, challenges and innovations that support each learner especially those traditionally most vulnerable and underserved by the US education system. 

We also want to hold in view the Forward Through Ferguson Report, and it's signature priority of youth at the center. Which speaks for calls to action that "speaks to the needs of children and youth". Particularly in the area of "education infrastructure reform"  around  "early childhood education, education innovation, and school accreditation" (p.18).
