76105: Dr. King Won’t Rise
Drugs, gangs, prostitution, and crime. These are the realities that have plagued the Stop 6 neighborhood of Fort Worth for decades. However, for Dante, Quinton, and Franklin, Stop 6 was home. They learned that being a product of your environment is up to interpretation. For them, it meant “World Wide P”, a band of brothers that uplifted each other and applied ‘the ultimate peer pressure, in a positive way. In a community rich in history and decorated with culture, these men chose to come back and be the impact the neighborhood needed; to blur the racial lines and bring healing to a hurting city. From these desires Community Frontline was born, and it’s their story we tell.

Examining the Texas Context: Diversity and Equity in Schools
The purpose of this session will be to explore the prevalence of racial diversity and equity in Texas schools. Racial diversity will be examined by comparing statewide school data to state demographics of race. Equity will be explored by identifying schools that have less than a 10% difference between STAAR passing rates across racial groups. Further data from a case study of a North Texas 9th to 12th grade public school will also be presented to explore different ways to measure equity and examine school practices for equitable application.

SEL: A Pathway to Equity
Learning is an inherently social and emotional process. Equity in education means that all students can have access to the right resources they need at the right moment in their education, regardless of their cultural background, knowledge level, or socio-economic status. While education has always been focused on academic skills and content, there is a growing body of research and observational evidence showing the link between SEL, success in school, and happiness in life. In this session we will explore how paying more attention to SEL can benefit students’ confidence, improve the learning climate, and ultimately boost graduation rates.
