“The Settlement is a protest against a restricted view of education.“
-Jane Addams

Join Jane Addams Hull-House Museum for a youth-led, intergenerational On the Table discussion with our partner, Free Street Theater on gender and equity in education. How does gender impact the education of girls, femmes, trans, and gender non-conforming students? Explore the gendered causes of high school dropout rates, college readiness, and student success at Chicago Public high schools with your peers while sharing your own classroom experiences and thinking toward the future.

This event is a part of From Brown v. Board to Ferguson: Fostering Dialogue on Education, Incarceration, and Civil Rights sponsored by the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience, a 3-year initiative where participating museum sites, and community partners collaborate to create youth-led public engagement programs on race, education, equity, and civil rights.  

This program is prompted by Jane Addams Hull-House Museum’s current exhibition Claiming Space: Creative Grounds and Freedom Summer School, an exhibition that explores school closures and the transformation of public school space.
