Our Culture, Our Schools

CEJ is excited to announce the release of our video, “Our Culture Our Schools”.¬† The video features numerous personal accounts from students, parents and activists alike. Each interviewee shares his, her or their stories facing racism and bias in school, and how Culturally Responsive Education (CRE) could have shaped their educational experiences. CEJ will continue to push the Department of Education to do what is right by all NYC students¬† and implement Culturally Responsive Education.

“When we negate people the opportunity to learn their legacy, and what brought them into this world, we don’t give them the space to fully love themselves.” – Diana Noriega, Chief Program Officer at The Committee for Hispanic Children and Families.
