Diversity, Social and Racial Justice, Educational Reform, Raising Expectations

Speaking Style
Authentic. Pragmatic. Bold

As a 30-year educator, Imad Fadlallah was not widely known until the documentary, Fordson: Faith, Fasting and Football came along. Imad was principal of Fordson High School in Dearborn, Michigan (second largest Muslim community in the U.S), and he knows all too well how deeply his students, staff and fellow Arab-Americans were affected by the events of 9/11…and the aftermath of fear towards them that is still trailing to this day.

For Imad, the notoriety isn’t something he bargained for. He’d rather be noted for taking a failing school and, in only five years, restructuring the environment, raising test scores and increasing college admissions dramatically, while significantly changing life- outcomes for scores of students. His tough stance approach towards reform is coupled with a commitment and devotion to children that is abundantly clear. Imad, fluent in English, Arabic, and moderately in French, speaks on cultural assimilation, educational equality, the Arab-American experience and more.
