In remembrance of Juneteenth, the date on which the last enslaved Africans in the US were freed, students, parents and allies came together to rally for racial justice in the classroom. From the steps of City Hall, we called on the Mayor to make Culturally Responsive Education (CRE) a centerpiece of his second term education agenda.
Culturally Responsive Education includes…
- A curriculum that reflects all cultures
- Positive discipline policies
- Diverse teachers and leadership
- Cultural competency and anti-bias training for all school staff
- Transformative parent engagement
