Yesterday, I was honored to be on the Melissa Harris-Perry show on MSNBC. The show’s focus was on what makes a good education. Other guests who joined me throughout the four segments on education were:
- Natasha Adams, student at the City College of New York and youth leader in Girls for Gender Equity
- Derrell Bradford, executive director of Better Education for Kids in New Jersey
- Anthea Butler, professor of Religious Studies and Graduate Chair of Religion at the University of Pennsylvania
- Michael Gellman, graduate of Bronx Science High School and in 2013, an incoming freshman at Harvard
- Lila Leff, founder of the UMOJA Student Development Corporation
Watch the first segment in which I talk about my class on feminism and activism for high school students. Watch the second segment in which I talk about the need to create safe schools free of bullying and harassment.
Wow – awesome job, Ileana! Every student should be so lucky to have a teacher like you. We can’t wait for your webinar on Teaching Feminism in High School this October! bit.ly/NxwTgu
Thanks so much for the very kind words, Emily. I’m looking forward to leading the webinar for HGHW this October as well! Onward!
