This special Alternative/Correctional Education discussion on Gangs will
begin at 8pm EST/5pm PST on Thursday, February 20. The
Alternative/Correctional Education Forum is a discussion group that
explores the professional development opportunities available to
educators who teach in K-12 alternative schools or correctional
facilities. Special Ed and Adult Basic Education resources are included.
The February 20 session will look at resources, including arts
education, for working with and
learning about gangs. Special guests will include Del Hendrixson from
Bajito Onda (http://www.bajitoonda.org/), Xavier Leonard from Heads on
Fire (http://www.headsonfire.org/), and a representative from The
National Major Gang Task Force (http://www.nmgtf.org/).
As always, TAPPED IN help desk personnel will be on hand to assist new
users. It's suggested that new users log in at least 10 minutes prior
to the session for guidance.
Persons with questions or wanting more information are invited to e-mail
BJ Berquist off-list.
