A number of racially charged incidents in Wake County Schools has prompted the district to bring together principals to talk about race.Next week, Wake County principals will participate in a two-day workshop.
 
A large part of the workshop will involve principals reflecting on their own understanding of race, according to Assistant Superintendent of Equity Rodney Trice.
 
“When we come together to work through issues of race, you bring with you the baggage the experiences you have so you have to be self-reflective about how you've come to understand race before we can begin to address is in our schools, Trice said.
 
The racially-charged incidents have sparked controversy in Wake County Schools this spring, including a video posted online showing three middle school students making racist remarks and chanting KKK.
 
Trice said he hopes principals will come out of the workshop ready to lead conversations about race with students, parents and staff.
