New SENGinar with Kate Bachtel: Growing Changemakers
“Only power that springs from the weakness of the oppressed will be sufficiently strong to free both (the oppressed and the oppressor).”
Many schools are not designed to be responsive to the way gifted children experience the world and therefore, to a certain degree, oppress them. The paradoxical strength in gifted children’s sensitivities is a source of power that can transform unjust systems; however, these same sensitivities can render gifted learners particularly vulnerable. Gifted students born with social justice genes deserve preparation for the arduous nature of the changemaker journey. Today’s political reality is not congruent with the just and peaceful society our children dream of and yearn to co-create. Youth need to know when we push against an inequitable system, it pushes back. Together we can expedite equity by defining what it means to be a changemaker, explaining obstacles to expect along the way and sharing proven practices that support evolution. Please join us in supporting youth in being the change they wish to realize in the world.
