Publication: Utilizing a Critical Race Theory Lens to Reduce Barriers to Social and Emotional Learning
Three individuals from our Doctorate of Social Work program, Blanca S. McGee, Andrea F. Germany, and Regina L. Phillips, along with DSW Adjunct Instructor Liza Barros-Lane have published "Utilizing a Critical Race Theory Lens to Reduce Barriers to Social and Emotional Learning: A Call to Action" in Children & Schools. According to the article's abstract, "School social workers are well positioned to address equity concerns and systemic racism in schools. They play a key role in addressing SEL, reducing equity barriers, and navigating the CRT opposition. The authors view the role of the school social worker as an integral part of social and emotional teaching and learning. This is a call to mobilize school social workers to advocacy roles for SEL, equity, and racism concerns that have long impacted students of color."
