No matter where or what type of school system they attend in Kansas City, Black students do not receive equitable academic outcomes as their non-Black peers. The State of Black Education Summit attendees will collaborate to build initiatives, action steps, and accountability measures.
The State and Solutions of Black Education 2022 will push past the educational status quo, and demand a better way for Black students, Black families, and Black communities.
The summit exists to connect the Black community and its main stakeholders in education in order to reveal data, learn through listening, and create community action plans for movement towards liberation.

Black KC Metro Students (50)
Outcomes: Inform and Prepare
Students are the future of our communities and the holders of our liberation, however, they are often left out of planning conversations. Students who attend the state of Black education summit will engage in complex and intensive workshops focusing on organizing, action planning, and problem solving that will prepare students for the rigor of college and beyond.
Black KC Metro Parents (50)
Outcomes: Arm & Empower
Parents are the true stakeholders of student success. Conversely, they are often held out of conversations about school policies, procedures, and systems that directly impact their children and their communities. At SoBE, parents will be empowered to be a part of their child’s education process.
Black KC Metro TEACHERS (50)
Outcomes: Absorb & Develop
Teachers have the difficult job of mitigating the middle of all these relationships. As the ones closest to students and administrators and parents, teachers at SoBE will be able to experience and hear the perspectives of all their major stakeholders, hearing first hand data and be able to absorb information and turn it into development for increased effectiveness towards initiatives created in the summit.
Black KC Metro School Leaders / Ed. Professionals
Outcomes: Connect & Build
School leaders are often isolated and left to difficult decisions without a network of like minded individuals. At SoBE, school leaders will be able to identify and build a working group of individuals that will be able to use their collective voice for change in the community.
