Around the world, black girls are being pushed out of schools because of policies that target them for punishment, says author and social justice scholar Monique W. Morris. The result: countless girls are forced into unsafe futures with restricted opportunities. How can we put an end to this crisis? In an impassioned talk, Morris uncovers the causes of “pushout” and shows how we can work to turn all schools into spaces where black girls can heal and thrive.

This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.

    Howdy! Someone in my Myspace group shared this site with us so I came to look it over. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Excellent blog and outstanding design. I’ve been surfing online greater than 3 hours today, yet I never found any fascinating article like yours. It is lovely worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before. I could not refrain from commenting. Well written!
