ICUJP Friday Forum
September 16th, 7:30-9:30 am Pacific
30 Years Teaching in Watts and Compton
What can we learn from the lessons that many students in Watts and Compton taught their teacher? And what lessons developed there could be used by teachers and their advocates in other working class environments? When children feel powerless, and when some among them feel that acting out and disrupting their classrooms is their only means to feel empowered, how can we heal them with hope and the knowledge of other paths?
Carolfrances Likins taught elementary school for about three decades, mostly in Compton and Watts, where she sometimes was supported by the administrations, sometime strongly opposed by them, as she strove to be a catalyst to her students discovering what their cultures have in common with those of others. She will share stories of her lessons and their learnings.
