Using Positionality to Amplify a Black Mother’s Voice [in Special Education]

Reading Time: < 1 minute

In this Equity Spotlight Podcast, the authors discuss the experiences that Joyce has had as a Black mother whose son is in Special Education. We highlight the intersectional issues of disability and race when advocating for fair treatment of Black youth in the K-12 public school system. Coming from different positions allows us to confirm that these occurrences are not situational, but common within the education systems, violating regulations of the education system.
