Group Plans Teachers’ Retreat
A weekend human relations retreat for teachers, sponsored by the National Conference of Christian and Jews, is slated for March 12 at Camp Hess Kramer in the Malibu Hills.
Participants will examine their own prejudices and do exercises aimed at helping them better interact with student populations of different races, cultures, gender or sexual orientations.
“Our teachers are the first line of defense against racial conflict,” said program coordinator Lecia Brooks, a former teacher.
The program is funded in part by the Herb Alpert Foundation, and financial aid is available to any teacher who wants to attend.
