Many students of color attend schools where their histories, culture and lived experiences have been little more than footnotes in their school curriculum. A growing movement led by parents, students and educators is aiming to fix that by implementing culturally responsive education.
Culturally responsive education has been shown to increase student engagement, improve student self-perception, and increase student achievement and graduation rates: but it won’t be handed to us. We have to organize and fight for it.
Join us for an engaging webinar as we discuss culturally responsive education and what it will take to win it for all our public schools.
This webinar is part of a new series of Schott-hosted webinars that shine a spotlight on culturally responsive education efforts nationwide, focusing on curriculum, teacher diversity, and safe and supportive schools.
Our speakers included:
Dr. Curtis Acosta, Founder, Acosta Latino Learning Partnership and Acosta Educational Partnerships
Natasha Capers, Coordinator, NYC Coalition for Educational Justice
Natalie Zwerger, Director, Center for Strategic Solutions
Marianna Islam (moderator), Director of Programs & Advocacy, Schott Foundation for Public Education
