How do we disrupt the deficit beliefs that steal belonging, purpose, pride, and joy from Black students? School reform efforts have long dominated the educational landscape, but the fixes that characterize many school improvement initiatives swing on the hinges of deficit beliefs about Black students.

This webinar calls for a disruption in these models and urges educators to take the significance of beliefs and cultures within schools seriously. Focused on racial equity from an ecological perspective and designed to propel readers to examine individual and systemic beliefs operating in their ecosystems, Lauren Wells introduces emancipatory educational ecosystems governed by beliefs that affirm Black children and immerse them in learning where their identities matter and set of beliefs that work together to create collective mindsets needed to power change.
