Nurturing Minority Student Success: Disrupting Curricula and Pedagogical Violence While Promoting High Achievement
Speaker: Professor Greg Wiggan (University of North Carolina)

 

Curricula and pedagogical violence occurs when academic programs and pedagogical processes are manipulated in ways that compromise the intellectual and psychological well-being of learners. In this sense, curricular omissions and falsification must be disrupted with inclusive multicultural and social justice oriented practices. As such, while there has been a great deal of attention on minority underachievement, less is known about high performing urban schools and processes that promote minority student success. The African proverb is precise, it does take an entire village. However, the village must become whole, inclusive, committed, and culturally responsive to promote students’ growth and development.
