TJE's theme for 2020–2021 is “Futures Matter: What is the Future of Transformative Education?” As we anticipate and prepare for the future (5, 10, and 20 years out) throughout this coming year, all TJE programming and activities will be implemented virtually to maintain safe and inclusive operations in the face of COVID-19.
Here are a few programs, publications, and projects to look forward to:
In July 2019, TJE Directors Torry Winn and Maisha Winn, along with Dr. Vajra Watson, received a $20,000 planning grant to develop an innovative learning experience. In February 2020, the Quarter @ Aggie Square committee selected their proposal as one of two programs to begin in Fall 2020.
Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and Black Uprising occurring across the nation, TJE hosted its second Transformative Justice Teacher Education Learning Community gatherings (Funded by Spencer Foundation) in June. With ever more relevancy, the scholars met virtually for three days to discuss and write on the topic The Future of Transformative Justice.
