In these times of crisis-level drop-out rates, suspension rates and low academic performance, there is an empowering message of "attitude transformation." This message is inspiring, reinvigorating, thought-provoking and candid; motivating audiences to expect nothing less than excellence. Please join Denise Bolds, MSW author of Raising Princes to be Kings: A Single Black Mother’s Guide to Raising Her Black Son and special guest Principal Baruti Kafele for an evening of empowerment! The role of the principal is the most important role in the building! When the principal is effective, the school soars. In his discussion on effective principal leadership, he argues that before we can focus on the achievement gap, we must first focus on the learning gap, the attitude gap, the relationship gap and the opportunity gap. When these “other gaps” are adequately addressed, the achievement gap becomes a “non-issue,” he comments. Milken National Educator, national best-selling author and nationally-renowned motivator, Principal Baruti Kafele is on fire! He's on a personal mission to motivate, educate and empower educators, parents and children toward the elimination of the "attitude gap," the world over. In his role as principal, he led the transformation of four different New Jersey public schools, including his current school, Newark Tech, which has been recognized twice by U.S. News and World Report Magazine as one of America's best high schools.
