CSUB professor Bre Evans-Santiago addresses the Panama-Buena Vista Union School District board about her course that would train teachers and academic coaches regarding social justice oriented classroom practices. 

After several parents spoke against it, the board of the Panama-Buena Vista Union School District said it needed to "pause" a professional development course that aims to train staff on "social justice oriented classroom practices."

Bre Evans-Santiago, department chairwoman for teacher education at Cal State Bakersfield, was planning to teach a one-day course on Aug. 6 for elementary and junior high teachers and academic coaches at Tevis Junior High. The course would be offered through pbvU, one of the programs the district uses to provide professional development to its certificated staff.
