Upcoming Events

The Poverty Puzzle

PCOE 5900 302; Class # 12974
Instructor:  Cory Frederick
Saturday · February 8, 2020
8:00AM - 5:00PM

In both rural and urban communities, access to health care, healthy food choices, safe and affordable housing, education, and employment opportunities is determined  by socioeconomic factors. Poverty is often generational and geographically endemic, and it affects students as well as their teachers. In this course, we will examine contemporary social issues such as environmental racism, food deserts, and school funding. We will also take a critical look at the “bootstrap” myth and the social class achievement gap. 

Sticks & Stones of Bullying

PCOE 5900 303; Class # 12975
Instructor: Cory Frederick
Saturday, February 22, 2020
8:00AM - 5:00PM

Bullying involves repeated and targeted verbal, physical, relational, and emotional abuse by peers and/or adults. This anti-social behavior affects 2.7 million students who are bullied each year, often leading to absenteeism, low self-esteem, poor test scores, suicide, school violence/shootings, and a hostile school climate. When students are bullied, parents and advocacy groups turn to legal channels for protection; are your schools prepared?  

Student Civil Rights

PCOE 5900 304 (Class # 12987)
Instructor: Cory Frederick
Saturday, March 7, 2020
8:00AM - 5:00PM

The United States Department of Education does not tolerate discrimination in public schools, and the Department’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR) enforces several statutes that protect students from harassment and institutional discrimination while on school property. Those statutes are Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the Student Non--‐Discrimination Act (pending), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act 1973, and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. These statues protect against harassment based on race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation and gender identity, and disability. The ORC also makes a distinction between bullying and discrimination, and educators are responsible for knowing what justifies harassment and what incidences they are legally required to report and address. This course is designed to tackle these issues and many more. After a brief overview of history and definitions, we will explore dynamic issues impacting students and educators in schools. Participants in this course will learn best practices to address issues that will help to keep their school in compliance with federal, anti--‐discrimination standards.
