The mission of the Office of Equity and Access (OEA) is to create conditions for all learners to thrive by supporting educators in cultivating Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education (CR-SE) and to provide policy recommendations to inform system-wide change for teaching and learning.
In partnership with NYU, OEA is providing an introductory session on CR-SE focused on:
- the conceptual foundations, impact and significance of CR-SE, emphasis on what CR-SE curriculum looks like in practice, and why CR-SE curriculum is requisite for equitable education
- opportunities for participants to engage in critical self-reflection, explore examples in practices, and articulate plans to become a culturally responsive educator
Principals, teachers and all other school-based staff are encouraged to attend. It is an opportunity for those new to CR-SE and those with some knowledge of CR-SE to engage in reflection and exploration of identities, biases, and conditions of inequality while centering historically marginalized voices and empowering students.
