In a city where most students are students of color, few reforms have focused on racial bias and discrimination in our schools. To address the root causes of persistent inequalities in the New York City schools, advocates and community leaders are calling for a shift in thinking about school environments, structures, curricula, and relationships called culturally relevant education (CRE).
Join us as we learn about CRE and its potential to center learning around our students and more deeply engage them in our schools, our communities, and our democracy.
- What does racial injustice look like in schools, and how does CRE address it?
- What does CRE mean?
- How is New York making schools more culturally responsive?
- What remains to be done?
