Celebrating 50 Years of Excellence in TA: Inspiring the Field for the Future
Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute
About this talk
We have accomplished much over the last 50 years, but a great deal remains to be done. This third and final webinar in the series will look at TA priorities for IDEA early childhood systems including remarks from the Office of the Secretary of Education, U.S. Department of Education. Keynote speaker Dr. Seena Skelton, author of the article “Situating my positionality as a Black woman with a dis/ability in the provision of equity-focused technical assistance: a personal reflection” will promote the notion of critically conscious TA providers and TA organizations. Remarks by Dr. Skelton will be followed by a national panel focused on priorities for IDEA 0-5 TA with a special focus on the role of TA to engage in the transformational work of dismantling oppressive structures and creating anti-racist practices, policies, and systems.
