Renewed Harmony, in South Carolina, offers a free recorded training entitled “Black Girls in Crisis” from their Diversity & Discipline Learning Series. Participants are invited to discuss how adultification bias impacts Black girls and their disproportionate representation across school discipline in suspensions, expulsions, restraints, and arrests before strategizing what to do about it. The training examines the research findings from multiple sources including a report entitled, “Girlhood Interrupted: The Erasure of Black Girls’ Childhood” conducted by the Georgetown Law Center on Poverty and Inequality and Pushout by Monique Morris. Participants also analyze the impact of adultification bias on Black girls and consider strategies for meeting their social-emotional needs. This session was highlighted in the Southern Region Education Boards Promising Practices Newsletter on page 3.
