Just 16 percent of female students, Black girls make up more than one-third of all girls with a school-related arrest. #Pushout seminar exposes educators to a world of confined potential and supports the growing movement to address the policies, practices, and cultural illiteracy that pushes countless students out of school and into unhealthy, unstable, and often unsafe futures. Black girls across the country whose intricate lives are misunderstood, highly judged—by teachers, administrators, and the justice system—and degraded by the very institutions charged with helping them flourish.

This one-day seminar for teachers, administrators and educators sheds light on the obstacles, stigmas, stereotypes, despair and implicit bias, that Black girls encounter inside of the education system and provide tools and strategies for keeping Black girls engaged, successful and breathe dignity into their lives in classrooms, juvenile facilities, and beyond.
