What you should know: Equity and Antiracism in Education

With the latest events surrounding race in America, one can not deny that there is a shift in the way that we approach cultural topics in education. Because of technology and the accessibility of racially motivated violence on social media, students everywhere are being affected by the racially heated social construct in America today. Effective educators have the gigantic responsibility to educate at a time like this. However, the best learning is lived experience; The best educators understand that connecting those lived experiences to important concepts (with empathy) is key to effective instruction. People across the nation are shaken to their core and trying to fully comprehend how this impacts their schools, their families, and their understanding of reality and safety. With the effects of COVID-19 still underway, we are living a historical event; and you, as an educator, are the glimmer of hope that some students need to feel safe and understood.
