The Disproportionality Technical Assistance Network (The Network) is offering a unique opportunity for all participating school staff, equity teams and partners for continuing our personal and professional racial equity work with a focus on the American Indian student experience...Join us in a Study Circles conversation and the exploration of the book,Everything You Wanted to Know About Indians But Were Afraid to Ask by Anton Treuer. Each session will use Dr. Treuer's book as a foundation for our conversation while exploring the impact of the opportunity gap for our American Indian students.

Study Circles address racial and ethnic barriers to student achievement and parent involvement by engaging diverse staff, parents and partners in dialogue and problem solving.

All participants will be provided with the book at no charge. Please register early so we can send your book prior to the first session.

Study Circles will be facilitated by Melissa Moe, the Network Training and Supports Project Coordinator and, David O'Connor, DPI's American Indian Studies Consultant.
