What would be the impact if you brought together a group of more than 200 students and teachers, representing every high school in Mercer County, to discuss the delicate issues of race, class and gender?  That gathering took place a few weeks ago when 10 students and five teachers from every Mercer County high school came together for the first annual Day of DialogueA Journey into Race, Class, and Gender in Our Schools.

Conversations on New Jersey Education, NJSBA’s program over BlogTalkRadio.com, will feature a discussion about the event, and what students and staff learned. The program will be held on April 5 at 1 p.m. NJSBA host Ray Pinney will be joined by Dr. Thomas Smith, superintendent, Hopewell Valley Regional School District; Crystal Edwards, superintendent, Lawrence Township School District; and Jessica Cincotta, assistant principal, Lawrence Township High School.

About the Program Conversations on New Jersey Education is similar to a live radio talk show, except it is broadcast through the Internet. The 45-minute shows air live, but recordings are also available to download later, or to listen to “on demand” online. To hear the live show or past recorded broadcasts, visit NJSBA’s BlogTalk Radio web page.
