A classroom for every student
The death of George Floyd in 2020 sparked a revolution: it was time to take action and make the world a more equal place. If we truly want to see the world become fairer and better, then equality starts early. It starts in education. Classrooms must be free of racism.
It's no longer enough to pretend that racism does not exist and that all students are fairly represented in the education system. Change needs to start today for a better future for all of us. The only way that will happen is through an anti-racist classroom.
'Anti-racism' is still a new term and most teachers are unfamiliar with it. In this course, we reflect on our own teaching practices and explore ways to build a classroom for all students.
