When tensions run high, it’s hard to make headway on important questions such as what should be taught in schools, and how should it be taught. Yet, these are vital conversations that, for many schools, districts and community organizations are happening for the first time and with a new perspective. What is really behind the debate? How is rulemaking shaping the discussion? How can funders help keep the conversation centered on teaching students critical thinking and history rather than feeding a culture war?
In session two of this series on critical race theory, Dr. John Garcia, president of the Greater LA Education Foundation, will lead a conversation with funders, policymakers and advocates on these questions and more.
Join us to explore what role funders can play in sustaining an equity agenda in education during this significant time in history.
