Opening Keynote Address: 8:45 a.m. – 10:15 a.m.

Recent research has indicated that racial disproportionality in early childhood and K-12 school discipline arises primarily from implicit bias, the unconscious influences on our decisions. This presentation will describe the concept of implicit bias in education and share specific strategies for reducing its effects on decision-making to enhance equitable outcomes for all students, including providing students with more voice in their school-wide systems.
