Kavitha Mediratta, Chief Strategy Advisor for Equality Initiatives and Human Capital Development at The Atlantic Philanthropies, just co-edited and published her latest book, Inequality in School Discipline, that addresses the profound and life-altering consequences students face – especially young people of color – when schools enforce punitive disciplinary systems.
On November 15th, Philanthropy New York invites you to join Kavitha and the Ford Foundation’s Senior Program Officer in Youth Opportunity and Learning, Frederick J. Frelow, for an one-on-one interview. During their conversation, both will reflect on how and when philanthropy can best serve as an agent for change and the kinds of partnerships that make that possible.
- School discipline – suspensions, expulsions, and arrests, among others
- Why some students are subjected to harsher discipline than others and how to change these patterns in schools
- Philanthropy as a change agent – when it works and when it does not
- Kavitha Mediratta, Chief Strategy Advisor for Equality Initiatives and Human Capital Development, The Atlantic Philanthropies
- Frederick J. Frelow, Senior Program Officer in Youth Opportunity and Learning, Ford Foundation
