California NAME Conference
Education as a Human Right
CALL FOR PROPOSALS EXTENDED to: November 15th, 2015 

Knox Middle School
San Diego, CA


Join Us in San Diego January 10th!
Join educators, students, and community members to share and learn about ways to make education more equitable in California.  This year’s conference theme “Education as a Human Right” asks us to answer questions like: What does it mean to be a member of the human family and how do schools reflect or deny our human rights?  We must ask who is denied education in our state, how, and why?  Equally important is to question what counts as an education that respects the dignity of each individual and group?  What are the micro and macro strategies utilized to deny or activate equitable educational opportunities?  What are the pedagogical and curricular orientations that reflect an ethos of human rights?  How do students, teachers, researchers, policymakers, parents and community members value identit(ies), languages, cultures, sexualities etc. inside and outside of educational settings?  How are we engaging in work that supports education as a human right?

Conference Theme
Sonia Nieto and other leading scholars in multicultural education profess the significant role that schools play in preparing citizens for active participation in a democratic society.  Situated within social, political, and economic contexts, schools occupy a central location in the intersecting and interlocking structures of society.  This provides the perfect training ground for students to learn about social inequities and pursue social justice – in places local and global.  From service-learning to civic engagement, schools are spaces where students are introduced to social issues and learn that they – as individuals and a collective – possess the power to make a difference.
The 17th annual meeting of the Pennsylvania chapter of the National Association for Multicultural Education will focus on the various ways political, economic and educational issues intersect in the multicultural education movement. As NAME strives to be at the forefront of empowering individuals through education and community building, this conference will focus on the idea of inclusive education to inspire conference attendees to become critical thinkers and actors, find their voice, identify inequities, and advocate for social change.
