CRE Guidebook

Transforming Our Public Schools: A Guide to Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education (Guidebook) – We know that having Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education (CRSE) in schools is a critical part of honoring students of color and students of other marginalized identities. CRSE is critical to raising anti-racist youth and educators, and developing student agency and critical consciousness to address societal inequities. The money spent on policing can be used instead to fund culturally responsive-sustaining curriculum, pedagogy, and school climate. 

Check out this latest resource: “Transforming our Public Schools: A Guide to Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education,” where you can learn more. This booklet offers information and resources on what a culturally responsive classroom and school looks like in action. You can find the booklet here There are more toolkits, one-pagers, and key research studies on the CRE Hub website: Please share these resources widely.

Community Roadmap to Bring Healing-Centered Schools to the Bronx

This roadmap lays out a step-by-step process to help schools remove structures that undermine healing, build practices that advance healing, and create whole-school change in the process. It is a culmination of years of intense research, community conversations, and written by the members of the Bronx Healing-Centered Schools Working Group. The Working Group hopes this document will provide students, parents/caregivers, community leaders, and concerned school staff the necessary framework to bring healing-centered practices to schools in the Bronx and citywide.

Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Family Engagement in the Time of COVID-19 and Remote Learning, and Always

Culturally responsive-sustaining (CRS)  family engagement is absolutely critical for meaningful learning to take place. CR-S family engagement is the practice of authentic, equal partnership with families, rooted in a deep knowledge and appreciation for the rich social and cultural identities, assets, habits and contexts that families bring to learning. Read this latest document for guidance for districts, schools, and educators who want to deepen family engagement and continue to foster learning during the pandemic, and for parent and community groups advocating for stronger and more community-connected practices in their schools.

CRE Videos

 Hear directly from students, parents and educators share their experiences about why we need culturally responsive education. Conversations about race, gender, class clearly are not  given enough place in the classroom despite how much they affect students’ live experiences. Educators describe how they often have to leave such conversations out of their curriculum because of high stakes testing and test scores as schools’ main focus. CRE, on the other hand, grows students’ consciousness of who they are, what they bring to the table, their histories, and how to navigate it from a place of strength and empowerment.

CRSE One Pagers

What is Culturally Responsive Sustaining Education (CRSE)? The Education Justice Research and Organizing Collaborative (EJ-ROC) helps break down  CRSE into easily understandable terms through these new, multilingual one-pagers.. These one-pagers make it clear that CRSE works. Students excel in school when they see themselves reflected in the classroom and have strong, authentic relationships with their teachers  The public school curriculum does not reflect the diversity and needs of students. We need CRSE to transform schools today. One Pagers are available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean and Bangla. Download them here.
