Video: Diversity In Our Schools

 
 

 

 


In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior day,  video blogger Kate Cohen discusses the importance of diversity in our schools. While we have made a lot of progress in the last 50 years, according to Kate, a lot of work still lies ahead. While we may say that we celebrate diversity the sentiment isn’t always reflected as we would like in educational policy and practice.


Share your experiences in the comments: What are your schools or classroom policies regarding cultural diversity? Do you celebrate diversity in your school environment. Are you planning culturally responsive training sessions in January?


Happy Martin Luther King Day!

    This video is great and Kate makes some excellent points. She mentions some organizations at the end of the video as resources. Could links to those be posted in the description, please?

    Thanks!
