The Equity–Education–Empowerment Speaker Series invites students, families, staff and the community to hear Emery Petchauer, Ph.D., present ideas for remixing school to better serve students. Dr. Petchauer, an associate professor at Michigan State University who specializes in urban arts, will share ways that schools can borrow from the art of hip hop to use remixing and “the break” to rethink traditional practices.
The event will be held Thursday, February 15, 2018 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Rufus King Middle School, located at 121 E. Hadley St. on Milwaukee’s north side. Admission is free. Dr. Petchauer is co-sponsored by MPS and the Milwaukee Community Schools Partnership.
The Equity–Education–Empowerment Speaker Series is an ongoing event that brings nationally and locally recognized thought leaders to Milwaukee to facilitate conversation around key topics. In December, a presentation by Decoteau Irby, Ph.D, was attended by nearly 200 people.
Space is limited. Reservations are recommended and can be made at tinyurl.com/eeespeakerseries
The Equity-Education-Empowerment series aligns with the outreach strategies of Milwaukee Public Schools and seeks to engage the community as an important partner in education, as outlined in the MPS Eight Big Ideas to promote student achievement.
