The Power of Ethnic Studies to Dismantle Institutionalized Oppression in K-12 Public Education

Welcome to this seminar sponsored by the LBJ School of Public Affairs featuring Dr. Angela Valenzuela, Professor of Educational Leadership and Policy, Austin Independent School District Ethnic Studies Teacher Mr. Andrew Gonzales, and his two Travis High School students, Marian Nuñez and Aldo Frausto that took place on the evening of September 23, 2020. As the title indicates, it demonstrates the power of Ethnic Studies in K-12 education. 

I encourage all to register and attend the LBJ 10-Week Seminar that is itself titled, "Dismantling Systemic Racism in Education." 

Thanks to Eliza Epstein for her editing and sizing of this video.  Special thanks, as well, to Mallory Lineberger and Amanda Melancon at the LBJ School for extending this opportunity for us to share with the world the exciting promise that Ethnic Studies holds for revitalizing education.
