The Quiet Storm:
The Kallos Model Marginalization of Black Boys in STEM & Ethics

African American (AA) males are one of the most underrepresented minorities in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. Examining social influences that hinder equitable participation of AA males in STEM therefore remains a priority for school social workers, the education system in general and for the STEM world as a whole. 

This class will help participants understand the current demographics, statistics, and policies that impact minorities, especially AA males, in Maryland, District of Columbia and Virginia; to be able to understand and apply the Kallos Model to effectively advocate for AA boys within schools and communities that incorporates a culturally specific School Social Work Practice Model called the Kallos Model; be able to apply the knowledge gained for ethically-informed, evidenced based-practice at the micro, mezzo and macro level.
