Working Collectively to Decolonize International Schools

Date: March 16, 2022

In this session, the facilitators explore ways in which colonial roots impact relationships within schools as well as relationships between schools and their local communities. Crucial learning opportunities are missed when we fail to foster these relationships.

This session aims to bring together local and international staff to recognize and name the colonial roots of international schools on the African continent.

All educators are welcome. The presenters will share background information on the history of international schools in Africa and explore strategies for developing stronger connections with local communities.
The session concludes by linking this work to ongoing structures of communication with the AISA DEIJ Collaborative to help us hold each other accountable for building stronger connections with our local communities and decolonizing our schools.

The learning objectives of this session are:

  • To recognize the colonial roots of international schools and the neocolonial contexts in which schools may be situated
  • To acknowledge the necessity of working in solidarity with local communities
  • To confront the global impact of anti-Blackness
