The Censored Classroom: Why Book Bans and Restrictive Policies Hurt Us All – Webinar

September 19 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Free

Join the Center for Educators & Schools in a conversation about how classroom censorship policies weaken the quality of education.

 

Book bans and classroom censorship policies are sweeping the nation. Join the Center for Educators & Schools in a conversation about how classroom censorship policies weaken the quality of education and negatively affect educators, students, and society at large.

Chloe Latham Sikes, Ph.D., IDRA Deputy Director of Policy, will discuss what the current censorship landscape looks like today, where teachers can find resources to learn more, and what this means for the future of the teaching profession.

This event is open to all educators across the country and is part of the New York Public Library’s Banned Books Week.
