Today the Mayor announced that the City is putting $23 million into the Executive budget for culturally responsive education and anti-bias trainings for tens of thousands of school staff. This is in direct response to the tireless work of parents from the NYC Coalition for Educational Justice (CEJ). Parents have been fighting, organizing and advocating for this for over a year, even delivering 20,000 petition signatures to City Hall a few weeks ago.
The trainings will include several topics such as…
- Implicit Bias
- Culturally Responsive Education
- Educating Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students
- Empowering Families
- Power and Privilege
- Critical and Courageous Conversations about Race
- Embracing Diversity
- Leading for Equity and Excellence
