Social action topic of education conference

New statewide performance standards have caused big changes in California’s public schools. That topic and more will be addressed at the ninth annual Multicultural Education Conference, Sunday, March 1, at California State University, Sacramento. The free event will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Steven Lee Yamshon Alumni Center.

“Engaging in Social Action Inside the Accountability Movement” is the theme for this year’s event and will be discussed by keynote speaker Christine E. Sleeter, a professional studies professor at California State University, Monterey Bay. Her presentation will be at 9 a.m. Sleeter’s research and consulting focuses on anti-racist multicultural education and multicultural teacher education. She is the author of Culture, Difference and Power.

Other topics will include the arts, democratic classrooms, literacy, math and science, professional development schools, policy, research and technology.

For more information, call the CSUS bilingual/multicultural education department at (916) 278-5942. Media assistance is available by contacting the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
