“Never Let School Get in the Way of Your Education”

Session Title: “Never Let School Get in the Way of Your Education”

Speakers: Jay Gillen, Niyonu Fatiu, B. Sc.

Description: The presenters have both felt stifled by Baltimore City Public Schools, despite loving the people in them and despite feeling almost desperate about the importance of education in the struggle for freedom. Working together over many years, they are now thriving in an out-of-school setting. Using Algebra Project and African Culture principles, they hope to help change how math is taught in the public schools through a youth-centered math organizing strategy.
