About

Our schools talk about teaching the whole student or instilling confidence, and many of us thought that colorblindness and kindness were the key to belonging. The current context is demanding something different of us. We must learn about the whole cultural selves of the children and adults in the community, affirm all identities, and practice equity in protecting and serving the most vulnerable or marginalized. But where to start? Learn how group identities like female, African American, Buddhist, homosexual, middle class, etc. affect experiences in our schools, understand messages our schools and society send about these cultural identities, and strategize practical steps toward mitigating othering and increasing belonging. Though self discovery, affirmation of others, and collaborative work across difference, identify ways to create a community where difference is normal and value added, knowledge about difference is taught intentionally, and affirmation of all differences is practiced regularly.
