B'ville and Syracuse Students Work Together to End Racism



This school year marks the fourth year that students from Baker High School and Corcoran High School have participated in a school exchange and shadowing program through InterFaith Works of CNY. The Community Wide Dialogue to End Racism program brings a small group of students from an urban school and from a suburban school together for activities and conversations about stereotyping and racism. The program builds awareness about what stereotyping and racism are and provides students with ideas and tools they can use in their schools and throughout their lives to identify and deter racism.
 
Students shadow each other at their home schools for a full day, several times, over a period of two months. On shadowing days, students experience a typical day at Corcoran or Baker, attending classes and eating lunch together, followed by a group debriefing to end the day and discuss their impressions and thoughts about the experience. Corcoran High School students recently shadowed Baker High School students on January 12.
 
Matthew McDonald, Superintendent of Baldwinsville Schools, said that Baldwinsville is exploring the feasibility of expanding this program to its middle school students and eventually to the District’s elementary schools. “This is an excellent program,” he said. “I believe all of our students can benefit from this type of experience.”
