Marion Smith Jr
31:55
Yes, anti-racism is about disrupting and dismantling inequitable systems, policies, practices and procedures so all in the system can thrive.
Amanda Bolsinger-Jones
33:16
@marion Smith - Yes. I love the answer about actively working for equity instead of being neutral
Jay Billy
38:41
I think the labels are made to fill out forms. People should label themselves.
Amanda Bolsinger-Jones
39:48
@ Jay Billy - Yes. Self Identity is so important. And then respecting how people see themselves. I think the "forms" can be important to see who is a part of the community, but you can't get lost at the high level. You have to see people
Jay Billy
42:07
Dr. Flynn, appreciate it.

Systemic Racism will not allow particularly Black and Brown people to Overcome fully to the point that generations are freed equally. Changing the systems that allow for food injustices, housing and healthcare discrepancies, employment discrimination ect.
Amanda Bolsinger-Jones
45:36
@ Chalyce - Yes. Systemic racism means change has to also be systemic.
Jay Billy
45:45
Opportunity and access -
Amanda Bolsinger-Jones
45:56
for all folks here - on chat, check that you are sending to all panelists or all panelists and attendees so your co-agtendees can join in
Jay Billy
46:55
Or we can take down the fence
Brian Ritz
46:56
why don't we tear down the fence?
Amanda Bolsinger-Jones
47:27
"tear down the fence" for all of the folks saying that. Yes. that is changing the system
Sara Card
48:28
Or can those three students join the fans in the stands or on the playing field.
Amanda Bolsinger-Jones
49:28
@sara - yes. That is what Yolanda is talking about right now. Access. Getting the kids who are watching the game into it.
Aaron Kellam

Thank you!!!
Jay Billy

Stop putting money into Billionaires pockets like Pearson.
Chalyce Glover
55:58
Transformational Disciplinary practices that do not exclude or isolate students from the climate and culture of the school - using it as an opportunity to teach emotional self-regulation, mindfulness and yoga practices, integrative and culturally relevant curriculum and educational practices
Chalyce Glover
56:46
Utilize more of a Socratic method of teaching rather than this testing and tracking model
Amanda Bolsinger-Jones
56:47
@chalyce - Yes thank you for sharing alternative "disciplinary" practices that focus on brining students into community and learning better strategies rather than pushing them out of school and community
Chalyce Glover
58:12
@Dr. Joe Flynn - absolutely. thank you for that.
Philip Traversa
59:02
What about how testing makes students feel who aren't successful?
Brian Ritz
59:53
I have heard it redefined as predictable disparity, not a racial achievement gap, as racial gap can make it sound like it is an expected outcome of race, whereas predictable disparity points at the system, not the person, and charges those of us in the system to mitigate the trends that make these achievement outcomes predictable. I think I got that from Minor's book actually.
Joe Flynn (he/him/his)
01:00:31
@Brian… Great point!
Brian Ritz
01:02:27
I think I sent that to just the panelists unintentionally, so I will share with others: I have heard it redefined as predictable disparity, not a racial achievement gap, as racial gap can make it sound like it is an expected outcome of race, whereas predictable disparity points at the system, not the person, and charges those of us in the system to mitigate the trends that make these achievement outcomes predictable. I think I got that from Minor's book actually.
Caitlin Grant
01:03:50
@Brian.. I love that!
Amanda Bolsinger-Jones
01:03:59
@Brian Thank you for sharing. I like that framework of predictability based on the resources we give those students
Bobbie Noall
01:04:44
@Brian, great point. Often the disparity comes from the lack of resources
Robin Bayer
