Faculty members from the Educational Foundations program of the College of Education and Community Innovation invite the Grand Valley community to a virtual screening of a CBS documentary on how and when race should be taught in schools. 

The event begins at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 31.  

The documentary, “What Should We Teach?” focuses on the recent actions by school districts to ban books and states’ legislation to curb the teaching of “divisive concepts” and override educators’ expertise in K-12 education.

A Q&A session will follow the screening featuring Dorinda Carter Andrews, professor of race, culture and equity at Michigan State University; Kefentse Chike, professor of African American studies at Wayne State University; and Chastity Pratt, education bureau chief at the Wall Street Journal.

To attend the screening, fill out the registration form.
