The NCSPA Regional Representatives invite you to participate in a free virtual watch part of Pushout: The Criminalization Of Black Girls In Schools for school psychologists in NC. This is a documentary which takes a close look at the educational, judicial and societal disparities facing Black Girls. Inspired by the book of the same name by Monique W. Morris, Ed.D., the documentary confronts the ways in which the misunderstanding of Black girlhood has led to excessive punitive discipline which in turn disrupts one of the most important factors in their lives, their education.

Following the watch party, participants will be led in a discussion of a school psychologist's role in advocating for the needs of Black girls in the education system.
