About the event
Rumors and false narratives about what’s happening in our schools are rampant. Don’t know who or what to believe? Hear from an educator on the frontlines of this battle, former Colleyville Heritage High School Principal, Dr. James Whitfield. Dr. Whitfield has addressed the US House subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties in a hearing examining political attacks on free speech and classroom censorship. He is an award-winning educator who’s centered on creating safe, nurturing, and equitable learning environments. Over the course of nearly two decades in education he’s served as a classroom teacher, assistant principal and principal at the middle and high school levels. He’s known for disrupting systemic barriers, building positive culture, and driving innovation to build excellent learning environments for all students. Education changed the course of his life and he’s driven by a deep sense of purpose to ensure every student feels seen, heard, valued, and has access to a great school experience.
