Superintendent selected for panel on serving marginalized students
On April 8, 2021, Dr. Eric Jay Rosser will serve on a panel of educators to engage in conversation about their experiences in serving marginalized students and share best practices on how to help educational leaders generate solutions.
The State University of New York at New Paltz School of Education organized the event. The panel also features Dr. Roberto Padilla, superintendent of Newburgh Enlarged City School District; 2021 NYS School Superintendent of the year, Ms. Ilyasah Shabazz, award winning author, educator, producer and daughter of Malcom X and Betty Shabazz; and Ms. Angela Urbina-Medina, superintendent of New Paltz Central School District. Dr. René Antrop-González, dean of SUNY New Paltz School of Education will serve as moderator.
“It is an honor for me to serve as a panelist with other champions for children. When I think back to what motivated me to enter into the field of education and what continues to fuel my passion and commitment, I can’t help but to think about my own experiences in the Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS) as a kid who resided in an impoverished community and was bussed to a school outside of my neighborhood as part of CPS’s desegregation efforts. While desegregation efforts are primarily a thing of the past, the experiences of marginalized children in schools continues to be an important student success conversation and serves as the need for cultural and linguistic relevant practices and activity to be implemented in school districts across the country.” Rosser shared.
