Social Work and Urban Education

ID: 4966WEB

This webinar focuses on the role that school social workers can play in addressing the issues in urban education. We start by outlining the major challenges to urban schools (i.e. poor facilities, outdated materials etc.) as well as how urban students and teachers are perceived. We then shift gears and have a conversation about the possibilities of urban schools and students. This is an interactive webinar where participants will be expected to work together to discuss how macro and micro practice measures can be employed to address school conditions and student outcomes.
